Description
Winner of the 1981 Guardian Fiction Prize The tumultuous life of Renaissance astronomer and mathematician Johannes Kepler forms the basis of this novel by the author of The Infinities, depicting the scientist's attempt to use geometry to find order in the cosmos. Exiled for refusing to convert to Catholicism, Kepler is beleaguered by worldly difficulties, including domestic strife, unreliable patrons, and epidemics.

"This very distinguished novel ... is done with very considerable skill; it suggests that this is what such a life must indeed have been like and the result is a wonderfully human figure, rife with feelings, principles, regrets and courage"Sunday Times (UK)
