Katarina west Spotlight

Book blurb

Elisa Mancini is a Nobody. Painfully insecure, more at ease with books than with 

people, at twenty-three she’s a university dropout living at her aunt’s, drifting 

from one day to another, and waiting for something big to happen.

Judith Shapiro is a Somebody. Arrogant and eccentric, she’s a superstar of 

mathematics, the subject of scientific articles, and the undisputed ruler of the 

world around her.

In a trillionth of a trillionth of a second, Elisa falls madly in love with Judith Shapiro. 

For sixty-eight days she is the mistress of an internationally acclaimed 


But loving Judith Shapiro is like running a marathon in a war zone. As days pass, 

Elisa’s wild infatuation takes on a suicidal bent, and the world around her starts 

to go to pieces. Just as everything is about to blow up, the moment of truth 


Absolute Truth, For Beginners is a story about truth, time and love. Or about 

identity, positive nursing, degrees of happiness, Baroque art, scientific theories, 

homosexual lovemaking, arrogant television producers, and becoming who you 

really are.
