My opinion: When I recommended Sedgwick’s She is not Invisible, I heard complaints that it focused too much on math theory. While theoretical math plays a less direct role in the plot of this novel, spirals and their role in life are the center of the whole novel. The last two stories in particular take an in depth look at spirals and theoretical science. It’s not a particularly difficult book to read, though I personally found the last story rather trying. And it was interesting to read about the different time periods, especially when Sedgwick would include little nods to the previous stories. It’s just going to be a hard sell for most readers.
