    Oh Pure and Radiant Heart plucks the three scientists who were integral to the invention of the atom bomb: Robert Oppenheimer, Leo Szilard, and Enrico Fermi as they watch history's first mushroom cloud rise over the desert on July 16th, 1945... and places them down in modern-day Santa Fe.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Oh Pure and Radiant Heart?

    The story just never went anywhere. I was almost finished with the book but couldn't be bothered listening to the very end. I just didn't care what happened to any of the characters.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lydia Millet again?

    No, I wouldn't.


    What does Cori Samuel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think the humor comes out well.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Oh Pure and Radiant Heart?

    All of the parts having to do with religious fundamentalists.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a bit odd to have a book set in America, following American character's POV with a British accent. It was a bit hard to overcome this disconnect.
