Descripción del libro A DOUBTER S ALMANAC

After a lonely childhood in the forests of northern Michigan in the 1950s, it was not until Milo Andret left for the University of California at Berkeley as a graduate student that his professors realized how prodigiously gifted and unusual his mind was.

Yet these gifts carry risks, and the California of the 1970s is full of temptations, opening Milo's eyes to the charm of ambition and indulgence.

The research that begins there will make him a legend; the woman and the rival he meets there will haunt him forever.

It soon becomes clear that Milo's brilliance is inextricably linked to a dark side, and it is this duality that ultimately threatens to unravel his work, his family and his life.

It is a duality inherited by his son Hans that he must conquer to avoid his father's fate.

The Almanac of the Doubtful is both a captivating virtuous illustration of the powers of the mind and a profoundly moving exploration of the nature of love, ambition and genius.

It is a novel of imperfect characters and frustrated dreams; of the bonds that bind and the passions that destroy.
