    Book of the year, IMO

    The Tenth Muse by Catherine Chung Math is the engine that drives this book, but everything that surrounds this engine is the body of the vehicle. The engine is not the whole. Katherine, the protagonist, has a story to tell and no words are wasted. It takes the entire book to get to the end of her story; a masterpiece of a tale. Katherine lives for puzzling over and solving mathematical theories. It is in her blood. Along the way, slowly, she discovers truths about her life that are more complex than the math theories she wishes to prove. Getting this information in bits and pieces is the best part. Chung just has a way with dangling that carrot, and nicely, gently leaving us wanting more. People cheer and disappoint Katherine. She rises and she falls in academia and in personal relationships. Largely, she shows the perils of a woman in a man’s world. All the parts weave together to make an incredible life’s journey. It is a story for all readers who delight in a perfectly delivered tale. If you read only one more book this year, make it The Tenth Muse. My sincere thanks to #NetGalley and #LittleBrown for an ARC for my review.
