According to Amanda Gefter's blog, the story begins at one of two times. Or perhaps both. It was either in the Chinese restaurant in 1995, when her father asked a pregnant question about nothing; or 14 billion years ago when the universe first popped into existence. The 17-year quest that she and her dad shared led her in unpredictable ways to new perceptions: Who would have imagined, for instance, that we all share a universe of very splintered reality, making it much observer-dependent than previously thought? Gefter's search for meaning makes Trespassing on Einstein Lawn a memoir skillfully inter-braided with accessible discussions about cosmological breakthroughs and surprises.
