The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordano
The Solitude of Prime Numbers: A Novel
This book reminded me a little of last summer's read, One Day, in the way that Mattia and Alice connect as teenagers but live apart - as prime numbers - destined to be alone. I suppose some of the mathematical metaphor was wasted on me, but I love the prose and Giordano's tenderness toward his fragile and flawed characters.
