              Lean Your Loneliness Slowly Against Mine: A Novel (Hardback)

              By Hveberg, Klara; Translated by McCullough, Alison

              A remarkable and heartbreaking debut novel with the lyrical beauty and emotional resonance of By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept and the thematic complexity of Asymmetry, that combines fractal mathematics and classical music to explore the infinitely complex patterns of... love and the thin border between great passion and great loneliness. Rakel has always been more comfortable with numbers than with people. A gifted woman with a rare talent for math, she has never mastered the art of making friends. At nineteen, she moves to Oslo to attend university. There she meets Jakob, a brilliant older teacher who becomes fascinated by Rakel's quick mind. Jakob is struck by the similarities between Rakel and Sofja Kovalevskaja, the first woman to become a professor of mathematics, and the subject of the novel he is writing. Just as Kovalevskaja was close to her much older advisor, Rakel and Jakob are drawn to each other and eventually become lovers, although he is already married. In the years to come, Rakel's academic career soars, but her health declines, and from her bedside she spends hours imagining Sofja's life while trying to understand her own. With a gaze both naive and mercilessly sharp, she examines what may be her life's only love story, looking for patterns and answers in numbers, music, and literature. Extraordinarily wise and penetrating, Lean Your Loneliness Slowly Against Mine explores the intricacies of the human heart, the complicated equation that is love, and the search to find meaning and connections when you need them most.

              Part memoir, part medical mystery, this page-turning debut shares the remarkable story of how one doctor discovered a potential treatment for autoimmune diseases. More than 20 million Americans have autoimmune diseases, which occur when the immune system attacks the body. The roo...t cause of these understudied illnesses is unknown. The Immune Mystery shares the deeply personal story of doctor and researcher Anita Kass's quest to solve the autoimmune puzzle. In lucid prose, Kass begins with the premature death of her mother, who developed rheumatoid arthritis shortly after giving birth. Only thirteen at the time, Kass vowed to study the illness and one day find a cure. She then describes her decades-long pursuit of potentially revolutionary research into what causes autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and multiple sclerosis and how to treat them. Her discovery eventually earns her a record-breaking pharmaceutical deal. A compelling blend of incredible determination and cutting-edge science, The Immune Mystery introduces a powerful new voice in medical storytelling.
