'Albert Einstein speaking.'
'Who?' asks the girl on the telephone.
'I'm sorry,' she says. 'I have the wrong number.'
'You have the right number,' Albert says.

From a wrong number to a friendship that would impact both their lives, Albert Einstein Speaking begins with the meeting of two very different minds - the world's most respected scientist and a schoolgirl from New Jersey. Riotous, charming and tender, R.J. Gadney's novel spans almost a century and shines a light on the man behind the myth.

"Out of this well-documented life, R.J. Gadney has conjured, with an accomplished novelist's art, a strange and luminous fiction, a literary gem beautifully and cunningly poised between historical truth and the warmly imagined. Its finale is deeply affecting" (IAN McEWAN)

"An informative and unsettling portrait of a great man and his times" (Guardian)

"Enchanting . . . A model of its kind; concise, funny and vivid" (Times Literary Supplement)

"Engrossing . . . An intriguing addition to the canon of fictionalised biography . . . Impressive" (Evening Standard)

"Curious, engrossing . . . A blend of fiction and fact, written in the urgent present tense, it uses Einstein's life to look at the times he lived through, and vice versa" (iNews)
