Sara Paretsky: ‘Critical Mass’
Marietta Blau was a pioneering nuclear physicist with a gender handicap. More than 40 years after her death, she has an unlikely place in the spotlight: as the inspiration for Sara Paretsky’s new V.I. Warshawski detective novel, Critical Mass.
Sara Paretsky is author of Critical Mass (G. P. Putnam’s Sons, 2013). She’s based in Chicago, Illinois.
