Die Vermessung der Welt

Yet another magical novel by prolific German novelist Daniel Kehlmann, this one following the lives of famous scientists Alexander von Humboldt and Carl Friedrich Gauss as they competed with one another and spurred one another on in their mission to “measure the world.” A creative and entertaining spin on the lives of two of Germany’s great Enlightenment thinkers! —Alex P, bookseller
