The Solitude of Prime Numbers

The Solitude of Prime Numbers
Title: The Solitude of Prime Numbers
Author:
Оценка: 4.7 of 5, readers votes - 6
Genre: prose
Annotation:He had learned his lesson. Choices are made in a few seconds and paid for in the time that remains. A prime number is inherently a solitary thing: it can only be divided by itself, or by one; it never truly fits with another. Alice and Mattia also move on their own axes, alone with their personal tragedies. As a child Alice`s overbearing father drove her first to a terrible skiing accident, and then to anorexia. When she meets Mattia she recognises a kindred spirit, and Mattia reveals to Alice his terrible secret: that as a boy he abandoned his mentally-disabled twin sister in a park to go to a party, and when he returned, she was nowhere to be found. These two irreversible episodes mark Alice and Mattia`s lives for ever, and as they grow into adulthood their destinies seem irrevocably intertwined. But then a chance sighting of a woman who could be Mattia`s sister forces a lifetime of secret emotion to the surface. A meditation on loneliness and love, 'The Solitude of Prime Numbers' asks, can we ever truly be whole when we`re in love with another?
