Kurt Gödel, the most fascinating mathematician of the twentieth century, has just died of anorexia. His widow, Adele, a fierce woman shunned by her husband’s colleagues because she had been a cabaret dancer, is now consigned to a nursing home. To the great annoyance of the IAS, she refuses to hand over Gödel’s precious records. Anna Roth is given the difficult task of befriending and retrieving the documents from her.
