“Smell is an illusion, my father used to tell me: invisible molecules in the air converted by my brain into cinnamon, cut grass, burning wood.”The DNA of You and Me
What a great line from Andrea Rothman’s debut novel. Read my review on Litro Magazine. The DNA of You and Me is the story of scientist Emily Aspell as she looks back on her life and beginnings in the world of science just before she is about to receive an important award for her work in olfactory research. An award that summarises what her life has been all about, the points of no return and the choices made along the way.
