A prime number is a lonely thing. It can only be divided by itself or by one; it never truly fits with another.  In “The Solitude of Prime Numbers,” Paolo Giordano a 29 year old particle physicist turned novelist creates one of the more charming stories of two damaged protagonists that I have read in some time.  His prose is original and stylish, captivating, not to mention moving and powerful.  Giordano’s novel won the Strega award and has sold in excess of a million copies in Italy.  Join me as I talk to this modest yet talented young author about his novel and his life.
