Catherine ist Kuratorin im Londoner Museum für Kunsthandwerk, ein Haus voller Schätze, in dem sie Uhren und Spieldosen betreut. Und sie ist verlassen, denn ihr Geliebter ist tot. Wie betäubt wendet sie sich einem alten Wunderwerk zu, einem künstlichen Schwan, der vor über 100 Jahren im Schwarzwald erbaut wurde: für einen kleinen Jungen, im Auftrag seines Vaters. Der erhoffte sich von der Maschine das Weiterleben seines Sohnes, so wie Catherine ihre Liebe retten will. Am Ende gelingt es – um den Schwan bildet sich endlich die Familie, von der der Vater immer nur geträumt hatte.

“A superb tool for making our homes, finally, a safe place to raise children.”—Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., author of Crimes Against Nature and St. Francis of Assisi. “This is the work of a lifetime, one sure to be a classic for future lifetimes. Thirty years ago, Paul Blanc educated me about the threat of cancers caused by corporate and government negligence. Now he tells a great, entertaining and shocking story, based on a vast knowledge of science, government regulation, history and popular culture that shows our personal dependency and the almost-forsaken cause of public health."—Tom Hayden, former chairman, committee on natural resources, California state senate.” "A masterful synthesis of some of the very heated and critical environmental and occupational health issues of our time. Paul Blanc offers a grounded look at the long term history of industrial disease, and the toxic environment in which we now live -- something that has been overlooked in discussions of the rise of the modern environmental movement."—David Rosner, author of Deceit and Denial: The Deadly Politics of Industrial Pollution and co-author of Are We Ready? Public Health Since 9/11.
