She herself a brilliant physicist, her contributions to the special theory of relativity have been debated for over a century.
In 1896, the extraordinarily gifted Mileva is the only woman studying physics at an elite school in Zürich.
There, she falls for charismatic student Albert Einstein, promising to treat her as an equal in both love and science.
But as Albert’s fame grows, so does Mileva’s worry that her light will be lost in her husband’s shadow forever.
In the literary tradition of The Paris Wife, The Other Einstein reveals a complicated partnership that is fascinating and troubling.
