Coming March 6, 2018


A brilliant first novel radiant with promise of even better to come.”
Booklist, Starred Review

The apparent suicide of a legendary mathematician drives Jacobs’s intricate and moving first novel. 
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

In lovely, inventive prose, Jacobs re-engineers the tropes of family drama to explore age-old conundrums of destiny versus self-determination… [A] remarkable debut.Kirkus Reviews

I so hated saying goodbye to the brainy eccentrics in the Severy clan that I started this book all over again as soon as I finished it.Julia Claiborne Johnson, author of Be Frank with Me

Jacobs weaves a charming, mysterious tale about family bonds, personal ghosts, and the wondrous intersection of mathematics and art. A fun, compelling read. –Matthew Sullivan, author of Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore
