In Eileen Pollack’s A Perfect Life, a young researcher at MIT searches for the genetic marker for a neurodegenerative disorder she may inherit from her mother, and falls in love with a man who may carry the same fatal gene. In Jonathan Levi’s Septimania, an organ tuner discovers he is the heir to the Kingdom of Septimania, and is crowned King of the Jews, Holy Roman Emperor, and possibly Caliph of All Islam. In John Pipkin’s The Blind Astronomer’s Daughter, accidental stargazer Caroline Ainsworth learns that her life is not what it seems when her father, a sun-blinded astronomer who threw himself from his rooftop observatory, has left a cryptic atlas that holds the secret to finding a new world at the edge of the sky.
