The Goddess of Small Victories (excerpt)

Yannick Grannec

Yannick Grannec is a graphic designer, art director, professor of fine arts, and mathematics enthusiast. She lives in Saint-Paul de Vence, France.

The Goddess of Small Victories is her first novel. In it the widow of mathmetician Kurt Gödel tells her side of the story, fleeing from the Nazi's, Princeton right after the war, the pressures of McCarthyism, the end of the positivist ideal, and the advent of nuclear weapons, in this utterly warm and fascinating, humane and disarming narrative of a complex set of people and times.

Translated from the French by Willard Wood.
