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.
