*Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture: A Novel of Mathematical Obsession*

by Apostolos Doxiadis

*Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture: A Novel of Mathematical Obsession*

What happens when a mathematical prodigy devotes his life to proving one of the greatest mathematical challenges of all time? In *Uncle Petros and Goldbach's Conjecture: A Novel of Mathematical Obsession* by Apostolos Doxiadis, Petros Papachristos's obsession with Goldbach's Conjecture — the deceptively simple claim that every even number greater than two is the sum of two primes — has come to define his life. Now an old man, he is looked on with suspicion and shame by his family — until his ambitious young nephew intervenes. As uncle and nephew deepen their bond, this novel unravels a dramatic mathematical tale set against a tableau of brilliant historical figures including G. H. Hardy, Srinivasa Ramanujan, and a young Kurt Gödel. Join *Tween Primes* to discuss this book and talk about how far you would go to prove you're right.
