Host Bethany Grabow talks with Amy P. Knight, author of the new book Lost, Almost. This genre-bending story revolves around renowned physicist Adam Brooks and his nuclear weapons work in Los Alamos, New Mexico. Reflections of his relationships come from generations of family, as well as his own memories. Revered by some, considered a tyrant by others, Adam’s very existence left a powerful impact on those in his orbit.
Lost, Almost has been called “an exploration of creation and destruction, passion and compulsion, brilliance and cruelty.” Tune in to hear the author’s thoughts on making life and death decisions in the workplace and the role of nuclear weapons in history and present society.
