'A shy teenager meets a young scientist at a New Year's party and falls in love with him. The story of their relationship would be unremarkable but for the complications of genius and terrible illness.'This is the story of Jane Hawking's life with Stephen, author of A Brief History of Time and hailed as the heir to Newton and Einstein. The determination that enabled Stephen to confound the stopwatch of his wasting paralysis and break through the most challenging boundaries of physics had a converse side. Encouraging him and caring for him meant not only the willing suppression of Jane's own academic interests but also of her personality. In this edition she has included her thoughts on the media reaction to her exceptionally candid memoir which is at times disturbing, but which is ultimately about the triumph of hope and love.'A harrowing and compelling account' - Irish Times'A great read' - Daily Mail
