by Jennifer Blackmer
Heralded as the woman who stole the bomb from the Nazis, physicist Lise Meitner became a human enigma when she fled battle-ravaged Germany directly into obscurity. The war long over, she visits with the painter Edith Hahn, wife of chemist Otto Hahn, and the two women reminisce, open up old wounds, and dissect the teeming worlds of possibility. Seamlessly blending art and science, Jennifer Blackmer's Delicate Particle Logic depicts the untold stories of nuclear fission, both real and rumor.
Delicate Particle Logic is appropriate for middle schoolers and up. Parental discretion advised.
