Product description


"Engrossing... At a time when British citizenship is being debated, we would do well to remember the case of Max Perutz along with the many other immigrants who transfused the intellectual life-blood of this country in the postwar years" -- Giles Foden Guardian "Ferry has captured her subject's genial, uncompetitive personality well" -- Brenda Maddox Literary Review "I loved it. As a scientist, reading this well-written biography of a great researcher was a treat... Max Perutz was a great man and a great researcher, and here he has received the biography he deserves" Sunday Telegraph "Elegant, adroit biography...delightful" Observer "Georgina Ferry's biography captures not only the scientific advances made by Perutz but also his curious personal qualities" Economist
