Those on NetGalley can request an advance digital copy of The Mathematician’s Shiva. Don’t know if this is the first pass (lots of typos), second pass (still quite a few typos) or third pass (no typos that I know of) version. I don’t have any say over whose requests get approved and don’t know how many digital copies are available. But they’re there! Enjoy!

“Stuart Rojstaczer writes with enormous wit, style and empathy, and The Mathematician’s Shiva is a big-hearted, rollickingly funny novel that’s impossible to put down. A tremendous debut.”
Molly Antopol, author of The UnAmericans

“I loved this smart, funny, big-hearted novel. As hilarious and wise as early Philip Roth, The Mathematician’s Shiva will delight and move you.”
Steven Strogatz, author of The Joy of x

“Here is the rare book that invites us into the romance of pure mathematics and the very human company of those who spend their decades unknotting the abstractions that describe our reality.”
Lore Segal, author of Half the Kingdom

The Mathematician’s Shiva is a brilliant and compelling family saga full of warmth, pathos, history, and humor, not to mention a cast of delightfully quirky characters, and a math lesson or two; all together, a winning equation! When Rojstaczer writes about mathematics, you’d think he was writing about poetry.”
Jonathan Evison, New York Times bestselling author of West of Here and The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving

I’ll be happy to be in NYC. If you’re a reviewer, bookstore owner, etc. who wants an ARC and runs into me at BEA, just give me your business card and I’ll make sure Lindsay Prevette, my publicist at Penguin, sends you one (get me early, and I might have one in my bag). Or you can contact Lindsay directly. Want to say hello at BEA? Email me.

When you get a letter for jury duty it’s from Cannes, not from the county courthouse. Given the contents of my recent jury duty letter, I haven’t made it to heaven yet.
