Lost and Wanted -- Nell Freudenberger

Staff Pick

Helen is a physics professor mourning the death of her Harvard roommate Charlie. In many ways it’s a story of Charlie herself, seen through the eyes of grieving parents, husband and daughter. But it’s also a story about five dimensional spacetime, about parenting, surrogacy, career choices and what it means to grieve. One might be tempted to think that the whole of this book is not quite equal to the sum of its parts.  But that’s because it opens more questions than it answers, and to contemplate such questions through Freudenberger’s eyes is a challenge and a privilege.
