BOOK: The Theory of (Not Quite) Everything by Kara Gnodde
Mimi is living a life constrained by the demands of her genius brother. Art is an esteemed mathematics professor, whose every move is dictated by routine and his determination to solve a notoriously complicated maths problem. When Mimi decides to find love, Art does the only logical thing: devises a strict mathematical algorithm to help her. But then Mimi meets unpredictable Frank… The Theory of (Not Quite) Everything (Mantle) is a warm-hearted, poignant story about two siblings bound together by tragedy. Johannesburg-born Kara Gnodde graduated from UCT, worked at Saatchi & Saatchi in London, and lived in Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore before settling in the UK.
