Paolo Giordano at Powell’s

April 9, 2011

Author Paolo Giordano was at Powell’s last night reading from his dark and haunting novel, “The Solitude of Prime Numbers”, which has already sold more than a million copies worldwide.  With a big smile Giordano said, “Amazing, thank you for coming, really a pleasure, only a little mathematics – so don’t be scared!”  The pleasure was all ours it turns out as he proceeded to read from the first chapter of this “very sad love story” in his sweet Italian accent. He said the main character “is like me – he becomes obsessed with prime numbers which makes him weird and scary.”  Thanks so much Paolo!
