The Grand Complication
By Allen Kurzweil
Hyperion August 2001
About the Author
The Library of Congress has a reading by Kurzweil
"Narrated by Alexander Short, a stylish young reference librarian of arcane interests, The Grand Complication propels the reader through a card catalog of desperation and delight, of intrigue and theft. It's a novel of suspense that comes full circle, with a clock-maker's precision and a storyteller's surprise, on page 360."
"THE SEARCH BEGAN with a library call slip and the gracious query of an elegant man.
A watch that shows the phases of the moon, for instance, is said to have one complication. A watch with five of these extra actions is said to be a grand complication.
