For Beginners Absolute TruthBook - 2015
Elisa Mancini is a Nobody. Painfully insecure, more at ease with books than with people, at twenty-three she's a university dropout living at her aunt's, drifting from one day to another, and waiting for something big to happen. Judith Shapiro is a Somebody. Arrogant and eccentric, she's a superstar of mathematics, the subject of scientific articles, and the undisputed ruler of the world around her. In a trillionth of a trillionth of a second, Elisa falls madly in love with Judith Shapiro. For sixty-eight days she is the mistress of an internationally acclaimed mathematician. But loving Judith Shapiro is like running a marathon in a war zone. As days pass, Elisa's wild infatuation takes on a suicidal bent, and the world around her starts to go to pieces. Just as everything is about to blow up, the moment of truth comes. Absolute Truth, For Beginners is a story about truth, time and love. Or about identity, positive nursing, degrees of happiness, Baroque art, scientific theories, homosexual lovemaking, arrogant television producers, and becoming who you really are.
