The InfinitiesLarge Print - 2010
On a languid midsummer's day in the countryside, old Adam Godley, a renowned theoretical mathematician, is dying. His family has gathered at his bedside: his son Adam, his daughter Petra, their stepmother Ursula, and Petra's "young man." But they are not alone in their vigil. Around them hovers a family of mischievous immortals, among them Zeus, Pan, and Hermes -- the genial and omniscient narrator. As old Adam's days on earth run down, these unearthly beings start to stir up trouble -- to sometimes wildly unintended effect.
