Princeton University 1980.Kurt Godel, the most fascinating, though hermetic, mathematician of the twentieth century, has just died of anorexia.His widow, Adele, a fierce woman shunned by her husband s colleagues because she had been a cabaret dancer, is now consigned to a nursing home. To the great annoyance of the Institute of Advanced Studies, she refuses to hand over Godel s precious records. Anna Roth, the timid daughter of two mathematicians who are part of the Princeton clique, isgiven the difficult task of befriending Adele and retrieving the documents from her. As Adele begins to notice Anna s own estrangement from her milieu and starts to trust her, she opens the gates of her memory and together they travel back to Vienna during the Nazi era, Princeton right after the war, the pressures of McCarthyism, the end of the positivist ideal, and the advent of nuclear weapons.It is this epic story of a genius who could never quite find his place in the world, and the determination of the woman who loved him, that will eventually give Anna the courage to change her own life."
