Dancing with Einstein by Kate Wenner
In Dancing with Einstein, Marea Hoffman is the daughter of Jonas Hoffman, a physicist who helped develop the first atomic bomb. As a girl, Marea was tormented with nightmares about nuclear annihilation. Albert Einstein was frequent dinner guest at their house in Princeton, but her father and Einstein had a falling out when Jonas agreed to work on the hydrogen bomb. Shortly after, he died in a car accident, and Marea never knew whether to believe it was an accident, suicide, or murder. As she turned adult, Marea took on a nomadic existence traveling the world before settling in New York City just before turning 30. In trying to unravel her past, Marea goes in search of therapy, and ends up seeing four therapists at once, presenting a different aspect of her to each therapist as she searches for herself. Kate Wenner's novel has received high praise with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel saying, "Wenner is a wonderfully descriptive writer, and in Dancing With Einstein crystallizes the anxieties of a generation."
