Nell Freudenberger’s Lost and wanted 

February 6, 2020

This novel got loads of good reviews: here, here and here, for example. I am happy to say that it did not disappoint me. In fact, at no point in the novel, I felt that the narrator is not a scientist — it is as if Oliver Sacks wrote  a novel — the descriptions of the academic life, research collaborations etc are some of the best I have read in a novel. Strongly recommended!
