Coming soon – German edition of the novel about Mileva Einstein

Aufbau Verlag is soon to publish the novel MILEVA EINSTEIN ODER DIE THEORIE DER EINSAMKEIT.

Mileva njemacki cover

The novel tells the story of Mileva Maric Einstein (1875-1948), the first wife of perhaps the world’s most famous scientist, the theoretical physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955). It encompasses the period from 1914-1933, the most difficult years of her life:  a divorce after 11 years of marriage and 17 of life together, his new marriage, her struggle with severe depression and efforts to bring up their two sons, Hans Albert and his younger, increasingly disturbed brother Eduard.  It ends with Eduard’s commitment to a psychiatric sanatorium.

Mileva Einstein, teorija tuge was originally published in Croatian (Fraktura, Zagreb, 2016).
