The Last Equation of Isaac Severy             

Coming March 6, 2018


“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

“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
