  • ""On a winter night on a remote Nebraska road, twenty-seven-year-old Mark Schluter has a near-fatal car accident. His older sister, Karin, returns reluctantly to their hometown to nurse Mark back from a traumatic head injury. But when Mark emerges from a coma, he believes that this woman--who looks, acts, and sounds just like his sister--is really an imposter. When Karin contacts the famous cognitive neurologist Gerald Weber for help, he diagnoses Mark as having Capgras syndrome. The mysterious nature of the disease, combined with the strange circumstances surrounding Mark's accident, threatens to change all of their lives beyond recognition. In The Echo Maker, Richard Powers proves himself to be one of our boldest and most entertaining novelists."--Publisher's website."

  • "On a winter night on a remote Nebraska road, Mark Schluter flips his truck in a near-fatal accident. His older sister, Karin, his only near kin, returns reluctantly to their hometown to nurse Mark back from a traumatic head injury. But when he emerges from a protracted coma, Mark believes that this woman - who looks, acts, and sounds just like his sister - is really an impostor. (Schutzumschlag recto)."
  • "Victime d'un accident de voiture sur une route du Nebraska, Mark Schulter sort enfin du coma mais ne semble plus reconnaître sa soeur aînée, Karin. Gérald Weber, un célèbre neurologue, identifie le mal dont souffre Mark, le syndrome de Capgras. N'ayant plus accès aux émotions qu'il éprouve pour sa soeur, Mark est persuadé que la personne à son chevet est un sosie de sa soeur."
  • "Karin Schluter torna da suo fratello Mark, rimasto vittima di un grave incidente stradale; è tutto quello che le resta della sua famiglia, e ha bisogno di lui. Quella che Karin tuttavia si troverà ad affrontare non è solo una difficile e dolorosa convalescenza. Mark infatti si è risvegliato dal coma con la sindrome di Capgras, un disturbo cerebrale che provoca una sorta di disconnessione tra la parte razionale ed emotiva del cervello. Il giovane riconosce le persone intorno a lui, ma spesso i sentimenti di cui le investe sono diversi, a volte anche in modo radicale. In Karin riconosce così la sorella, eppure allo stesso tempo non riesce più a provare per lei alcun sentimento di affetto."

  • "On a winter night on a remote Nebraska road, 27-year-old Mark Schluter flips his truck in a near-fatal accident. His older sister Karin, his only near kin, returns reluctantly to their hometown to nurse Mark back from a traumatic head injury. But when he emerges from a protracted coma, Mark believes that this woman? who looks, acts, and sounds just like his sister? is really an identical impostor. Shattered by her brother's refusal to recognize her, Karin contacts the cognitive neurologist Gerald Weber, famous for his case histories describing the infinitely bizarre worlds of brain disorder. Weber recognizes Mark as a rare case of Capgras Syndrome, a doubling delusion, and eagerly investigates. What he discovers in Mark slowly undermines even his own sense of being. Meanwhile, Mark, armed only with a note left by an anonymous witness, attempts to learn what happened the night of his inexplicable accident. The truth of that evening will change the lives of all three beyond recognition. Set against the Platte River's massive spring migrations? one of the greatest spectacles in nature? The Echo Maker is a gripping mystery that explores the improvised human self and the even more precarious brain that splits us from and joins us to the rest of creation."
  • "Mark, who repairs machinery at a meat-processing plant, suffers a head injury that prevents him from recognizing his sister Karin; he believes that she is a look-alike sent to spy on him. Karin, who has spent her life trying to escape their small Nebraska town, returns to old lovers and habits she thought she'd renounced. Stung by Mark's rejection, she sends a desperate plea to an Oliver Sacks-like neurologist whose popular books have suddenly come under critical attack."
