Cambridge cosmologist and playwright John Barrow, who will be speaking at the ideaFestival October 11-14 in Louisville, Kentucky recommended the following books when asked for suggested reading.
- Science on Stage: from Dr. Faustus to Copenhagen – by Kirsten Shepherd-Barr (Princeton UP)
- Chronicler of the Winds – by Henning Mankell (Harvill Random House)
- The Conjuror’s Bird – by Martin Davies (Hodder)
Dr. Barrow is the 2006 winner of the Templeton Prize and one of the people I am most looking forward to hearing.
