The Physics of Love

By Carla Kirchner

"The Physics of Love is all about connection, the starstuff that intertwines mother and child, soul and stone, and the living and the dead-'all of us spinning against each other in the dark' and 'bumping into God' while we're at it. With surprising imagery and fearless spirituality, Kirchner blurs the border between heaven and earth, delighting us with its gorgeous heartaches and mysteries. A dazzling debut worthy of savoring again and again."-- Tania Runyan

Public education is a hugely complex process.
