Ask Albert Einstein

October 2005 from Farrar, Straus & Giroux

On behalf of her big sister, a little girl writes a letter to Albert Einstein asking for his help with some troubling math homework.

Based on an article which appeared on the front page of the New York Times in 1952, the idea for this story has been brewing the author's mind for 50 years. Though she describes herself as "mathematically challenged," Lynne Barasch has always been fascinated with the life and work of Albert Einstein. She is thrilled to see her name linked to his.
