Making Curriculum Pop

Can a mathematician also be an accomplished storyteller? The answer is an emphatic yes, for both Catherine Chung, the Korean American author of “The Tenth Muse,” and her narrator-protagonist, a brilliant Chinese American math professor named Katherine.
“The Tenth Muse,” Chung’s second novel, is an elegant and absorbing fiction, an interlocking set of stories within a complex narrative that never seems convoluted. “I tell a story like a woman,” Katherine warns, “looping into myself, interrupting.” Chung’s crystalline prose and narrative control make the loops easy to follow.
