The Corner Stone," is inspired by the actual recent discovery of diamond matter which shifts the recognized advent of life on Earth back nearly a billion years. Commonalities between Asher Feldman (a surly, Jewish geochronology Ph.D. candidate from a long line of New York diamond dealers) and Brooke Jensen (a peculiar, old-money anthropology masters student from Minnesota) are seemingly limited to social reticence, short stature, high I.Q., and an academic focus on diamonds. But the collaboration which ensues after their happenstance introduction results in witty banter, agonizing sexual tension, and an exploration of the bridge between the scientific and mystical powers of the most universally revered material on the planet. A framework of complicated family dynamics and history, fraught with Holocaust survival guilt, diverse relationships, and colliding cultures, provides the canvas for this unusual tale of love between social misfits which is enhanced but not bogged down by scientific inquiry. First edition. Light edge wear. S/P, 2013. First Edition. Very Good/Not Applicable. (Inventory #: 2196216)
