The new novel features Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon. Unfolding entirely in Spain—Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, and Bilbao, the home of the Guggenheim Museum — ORIGIN thrusts Langdon into the intersection of two of humankind’s most enduring questions:
Where do we come from?
Where are we going?
In keeping with his trademark style, Brown interweaves codes, symbols, science, religion, history, art, and architecture with a decidedly fresh twist; the art is modern and the science taps into the coolest cutting-edge technology available today.
Doubleday will release ORIGIN in the U.S. and Canada on October 3, 2017; it will also be available as an ebook and an audiobook from Penguin Random House Audio. The novel will be published simultaneously in the U.K. by Transworld Publishers, a division of Penguin Random House. Additionally, a U.S. Spanish-language edition will be published by Vintage Espanol.
