About this title

Synopsis:

  • Einstein looked up to him, the Nazis tried to abduct him, his institute in Copenhagen hosted just about every Nobel prize winner in physics you can name (and then some), and Winston Churchill considered him a dangerous, dangerous man. His friends and enemies agreed: Niels Bohr was more than the father of quantum mechanics - he was one of the most important figures of the 20th century. The Tony Award-winning Broadway play "Copenhagen" barely scratched the surface... Suspended in Language tells the complete story of Niels Bohr's amazing life, discoveries, and his pervasive influence on science, philosophy, and politics. Told in an engaging and accessible mixture of text and comics, it includes a full color supplement on how to teleport just like the pros do-and why you might not want to!

About the Author:

Jim Ottaviani has written professionally for comics for over 10 years. Starting as a reviewer and interviewer for trade magazines, he moved to the other side of the creative fence in 1997 with the publication of Two-Fisted Science. That first trade paperback, focused on physicists, won a Xeric Grant and was an Eisner nominee. His second book, Dignifying Science (stories about women scientists), earned him another Eisner nomination and was one ALA's Best Books for Young Adults in 2001.

Fallout: J. Robert Oppenheimer, Leo Szilard, and the Political Science of the Atomic Bomb appeared next. In 2003 it was a one of Entertainment Weekly’s "Must Read" graphic novel, a Booklist’s Top 10, and an Eisner and Ignatz Award nominee.

Jim’s first career was as nuclear engineer—that’s where all this science comes from! He currently works as a librarian at the University of Michigan—that’s where all the esoteric resources come from. In addition to answering reference questions, looking things up, and writing comics, Jim also talks about them at venues ranging from conferences in California to libraries in Michigan to the Nobel Museum in Stockholm.
