"Everything is what it seems." So begins Pullman's extraordinary second novel, the story of Martin Browning who loves his wife and who goes to look for her when she disappears. What he cannot know, however, is that his search for the elulsive Catherine will lead him to Valencia and ultimately to South America and that he will find himself in the company of people of all sorts -- both real and unreal. "For Galatea is a romance, to be read in any way that strikes the reader as appropriate -- but always with great enjoyment." (From the cover).
