A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines

Here's something a little unusual... a novel.

A Madman Dreams of Turing Machines. Janna Levin.

In this remarkable work of fiction, astrophysicist Janna Levin reimagines the lives of two of the most important and influential minds of our time.

The narrator is a scientist herself, a physicist obsessed with Kurt Gödel, the greatest logician of many centuries, and with Alan Turing, the extraordinary mathematician, breaker of the Enigma Code during World War II.

The potential interest to this audience should be fairly obvious, although the book is centered at least as much on their substantial personal struggles as on their work. Here is the New York Times review, perhaps it would be nice to have an LtU review as well...
