“Bill Green’s work and writing prove over and over again that C.P. Snow was flat wrong when he claimed that science and art are separate and mutually incomprehensible cultures. This wonderful scientific memoir captures the romance and beauty of research in precise poetic prose that is as gorgeous and evocative as anything written by Rilke, painted by Seurat, or played by Casals.”
