Summary
Composer Peter Els opens the door one evening to find the police on his doorstep. His home microbiology lab -- his latest attempt to find music in surprising patterns -- has aroused the suspicions of Homeland Security. Panicked, Els flees. Amid an Internet-fueled hysteria, the "Bioterrorist Bach" pays a final visit to the people he loves. Through their help, Els hatches a plan to turn this disastrous collision with the security state into a work of art

Summary
Experimental music and genetic engineering? Heady stuff indeed, but what is most remarkable about this thought-provoking journey is how intensely it makes you feel about human creativity, experience, and the enigmatic fugitive Peter Els, whose flight from an uncomprehending world anchors the narrative. A perfect introduction to this brilliant but sometimes forbidding author. -- David Wright for LibraryReads
