Book Summary

Ten superb new stories by one of our most beloved and admired writers--the winner of the 2009 Man Booker International Prize.

In the first story a young wife and mother receives release from the unbearable pain of losing her three children from a most surprising source.  In another, a young woman, in the aftermath of an unusual and humiliating seduction, reacts in a clever if less-than-admirable fashion.  Other stories uncover the "deep-holes" in a marriage, the unprecedented cruelty of children, and how a boys disfigured face provides both the good things in life and the bad.  And in the long title story, we accompany Sophia Kovalesky--a late nineteenth-century Russian émigre and mathematician--on a winter journey that takes her from the Riviera, where she visits her lover, to Paris, Germany, and Denmark, where she has a fateful meeting with a local doctor, and finally to Sweden, where she teaches at the only university in Europe willing to employ a female mathematician.
