The Tenth Muse by Catherine Chung

Tue, 04/14/2020 - 10:56am -- JGranatino

Catherine Chung’s The Tenth Muse brings readers a beautiful and sweeping tale about identity, love, and legacy. Since Katherine was a child she knew that she was different. Now a mathematician striving to make her mark in a field that is male dominated, she furthers her studies in Europe tackling the Riemann hypothesis, the greatest unsolved mathematical problem of her lifetime. During the process she comes across a theorem that may not only solve the Riemann hypothesis, but holds the key to her identity and unmasks family secrets from World War II. What Katherine uncovers and the relationship she holds with a professor changes how she interprets the past, how she understands the present, and how she views the future. ~ reviewed by staff member Clara Mendonca
