In the Field by Rachel Pastan tells the story of a female geneticist—an outsider in her pursuits, and sexuality—in the mid-twentieth century. The novel is an inaugural selection of the National Book Foundation’s Science + Literature program, inspired by the life of Nobel Prize-winning geneticist Barbara McClintock.
Join Rachel Pastan in conversation with author and 5 Under 35 honoree Weike Wang (Chemistry; Joan Is Okay) on the intersection of science and literature.
