Historical Fictionados Book Club: Half Life, by Jillian Cantor

Thursday, October 14, 2021

"Half Life" entwines Marie Curie's real story with Marya Zorawska's fictional one. Cantor's unique historical novel asks what would have happened if a great scientific mind was denied opportunity and access to education. It examines how the lives of one remarkable woman and the people she loved -- as well as the world at large and course of science and history -- might have been irrevocably changed in ways both great and small.
