Interesting piece in the Guardian Magazine today by Marco Roth who will shortly publish a book entitled ‘Two Scientists: A Family Romance’ (priced at £9.59 on Amazon). The book is autobiographical, and the Guardian piece is an edited extract from the book.
When Roth’s father – a scientist – died of AIDS, the story that he had become infected in the course of his scientific work (a lab accident) began to be questioned. So too, did his fathers sexuality. This book chronicles Roth’s journey of exploration as to his fathers ‘double life’. The extract makes for interesting reading, although I’m not sure it entices the reader to go beyond what is published in the Guardian.
