About The Book:
Irene Fermi is different from other children.
Maybe it’s the way she dresses or how she talks. Maybe it’s the things she thinks. And while her sister is perfect, she is just the opposite.
Longing to be normal, Irene must learn how to hide, when to run, and who to fight. With her grandmother, weekend father, and shell-shocked uncle as allies, she counts each moment of calm as a victory.
Now a dying woman, Irene looks back on her life and unravels the knotted relationship with her mother and finds that she may have been wrong about everything.
In a world impossible to navigate, the true north of The Physics of Things is the triumph of love and the resilience of the human spirit.
About The Author:
Ginny Fite is the author of six previous novels and co-author of Thoughts & Prayers. A graduate of Rutgers University and Johns Hopkins University, her 40-year career in communications included posts in journalism, higher education, government, and even as media director for a robotics R&D company. https://ginnyfite.com
Fite captures the complexity of lived lives in language so accurate and clean that I’m reminded of what superb writing can do, namely invoke our own human condition. … Fite’s characters reexamine the past, not out of nostalgia, but because they are trying to find a way forward in a world that sometimes feels impossible to navigate. The book is emotionally rich, the characters complex and human. Fite has given us a novel that will, ultimately, help us understand our own pasts in a bid to do the bravest thing possible – namely, live a happy life.” —N. West Moss, author of Flesh & Blood: Reflections on Infertility, Family, and Creating a Bountiful Life (Algonquin 2021)
Heartbreak and joy. The one cannot exist without the other. These are the physics of things in The Physics of Things, Ginny Fite’s tour-de-force new novel-in-stories. Irene Fermi is a true heroine, playing a bad hand with courage and grace. Seldom have I read fiction so precise, so poetic, so unafraid to connect pain and bliss. Read this novel-in-stories to know the poetry of being human.—Frank Joseph, award-winning author of To Do Justice
