The Artist and the Mathematician is a story in two parallel narratives about a couple who meet, fall in love – and stay happy. Claire, the mathematician, is English, cold, shy, and brilliant; afraid of going mad, she has retreated from maths into programming. Rowan, the artist, is South African. He's talented and passionate, refuses to earn doing anything but art, and paints bar walls for a living. They meet in Cape Town, just a holiday romance – until a year later, Claire finds an exhibition in Cambridge.
This is their Happily Ever After. This is the story of Happily Ever After, the shapes it takes, and why it only works if you add a dimension.
