A Universe of Sufficient Size description

Alternating between contemporary Australia and a vividly evoked pre-war Europe, Miriam Sved’s interwoven narratives are linked by the compelling and brilliant Eszter. A young Jewish mathematician in 1938 Hungary and the irascible newly widowed mother of Illy in 2007 Sydney, Eszter is based on the author’s real life grandmother. The remarkable A Universe of Sufficient Size is simultaneously a generational saga, a study of trauma, an homage to familial love and a celebration of the mysterious beauty of mathematics.
