Sue Woolfe's runaway best seller in Australia breaks long-held taboos about sex and mothering.
Leaning Towards Infinity is an achingly honest, at times hilarious, vision of a heretofore unspoken world of mothers, daughters, genius, failed genius, sex, academic politics, and breasts.
Through three generations of a family and over several continents, Woolfe explores and prods at the force of brilliance in some women, and the actions of genius, but equally she casts a searchlight around the dark world of having to be a mother, that paradox where infinite love must withstand the daily onslaught of sleeplessness, anger, and selfishness.

Review by booksbooks11
Great to read a novel taking on the topic of maths and mathematicians. Really enjoyed this one, the structure of the novel is something really unique with many strands seeming to wind to towards each other.
