Marie Curie


I pushed my dream of returning to Tumaini to one side, though I devoured all the scientific books I could find in Grandfather’s library and Frieda gave me a book about Marie Curie’s discovery of radium.

  • For a moment I saw the world through his eyes, his intellect, his sweeping vision that took in Hippocrates, Pavlov, Freud, and Marie Curie, the discovery of streptomycin and penicillin, Landsteiner’s blood groups; a vision that recalled the septic ward where he wooed Hema, and Theater 3 where he was the reluctant surgeon; a vision that recapitulated our birth and looked to the future, looked past his life to the end of mine and beyond.
