Anyone out there read UNCLE PETROS & GOLDBACH'S CONJECTURE by
Apostolos Doxiadis? Subtitled "a novel of mathematical obsession"
it is fascinating thus far (80 pages in). Received it as a late
holiday gift from close friends. I think it appeared in Greek in '92
and in English just last year. I'd love to hear what others thought
of it and to recommend it to those who like literature and mathematics
with some history thrown in.
