Pressestimmen

"Although a psychiatrist by profession, fiction writer Asimov resists the temptation to over-analyze her relationship with husband Isaac Asimov, the prolific science fiction writer, in this lively nonfiction narrative. Keeping her recollections light and warm....Asimov's memoir is a readable testament to a happy, productive union between two intelligent and creative individuals....Readers familiar with Isaac Asimov the writer will enjoy his wife's take on Isaac Asimov the man, from his tireless sense of humor to his extraordinary intellectual capabilities, as well as his unusual role as leading man in a touching love story."
Publishers Weekly
"Janet Asimov has written a fascinating book on her late husband, his work, and her astute observations on this most excellent example of our species....While writing an in-depth book on as strong a character as Isaac Asimov, Janet still manages to be seen above the seriously important anecdotes she relates, as a real person, one who stood with her husband in his task of enlightening the world; she nicely avoids being lost in his glow. The woman who told her husband-to-be, the night before their wedding, that she was afraid of losing her identity as a result of their union, never had that happen."
James Randi
"Although her primary livelihood is that of a respected New York psychiatrist, her essays and stories in this collection reveal a literary intelligence every bit as sharp as that of her famous spouse [Isaac Asimov].... Isaac's fans will be pleased by the abundance of amusing anecdotes she tells about him....[S]he impresses with her knack for entertaining while informing."
