The Mathematics of Friedrich Gauss

Each story in this series offers a poignant glimpse of family life †“ the ties we cling to; the ties we try to sever; and the ties that make us who we are. Told from a myriad of perspectives, from a dazzling array of some of the finest short story writers of our generation (including Jhumpa Lahiri, George Saunders, Jon McGregor and Elizabeth Gilbert), Family Snapshots gives us a fresh, empathetic and moving insight into the meaning of family. The Mathematics of Friedrich Gauss is taken from D. W. Wilson's enthralling collection of short stories, Once You Break a Knuckle.
