Travelling to infinity : my life with Stephen by Jane Hawking( Book )

28 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and Polish and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Stephen Hawking is one of the most famous and remarkable scientists of our age and the author of the scientific bestseller A Brief History of Time, which has sold more than 25 million copies. In this compelling memoir, his first wife, Jane Hawking, relates the inside story of their extraordinary marriage. As Stephen's academic renown soared, his body was collapsing under the assaults of a motor neuron disease. Jane's candid account of trying to balance his 24-hour care with the needs of their growing family reveals the inner strength of the author, while the self-evident character and achievements of her husband make for an incredible tale presented with unflinching honesty. Jane's candor is no less apparent when the marriage finally ends in a high-profile meltdown, with Stephen leaving Jane for one of his nurses and Jane marrying an old family friend. In this exceptionally open, moving, and often funny memoir, Jane Hawking confronts not only the acutely complicated and painful dilemmas of her first marriage, but also the relationship's fault lines exposed by the pervasive effects of fame and wealth. The result is a book about optimism, love, and change that will resonate with readers everywhere

Growing up in London in the aftermath of the Second World War, Ruth is an observant and thoughtful child who finds herself in a confusing and mysterious adult world. She seeks refuge in her memories of her idyllic stays with her grandparents in the picturesque East Anglian countryside which provide comforting visions of a simpler life. As she comes to terms with her surroundings and her own adolescence, Ruth finds the motivation to pursue the tantalizing dream which governs her life from early childhood, and discovers some family secrets along the way. A coming-of-age novel about the unpredictable nature of human behaviour and about taking control of one's destiny, Silent Music is a timeless portrait of post-war Britain, as well as a lyrical paean to hope and aspiration

Mein Leben mit Stephen Hawking die Liebe hat elf Dimensionen by Jane Hawking( Book )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in German and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jane Hawking lebt 25 Jahre lang an der Seite eines Mannes, den man "Einsteins Erben" nennt. Während Stephen Hawkings Denken ungeahnte Höhen erreicht, richtet eine tückische Krankheit seinen Körper mehr und mehr zugrunde. Jane Hawking berichtet in aller Offenheit von einer Ehe, in der Begabung und Krankheit, Glück und Trauer, Treue und Grausamkeit nah beieinanderliegen. "Beim Reden gestikulierte er mit langen, dünnen Fingern. Das Haar fiel ihm über die Brillengläser ins Gesicht, und er trug ein staubig samtschwarzes Jackett und eine Fliege aus rotem Samt." Als Jane Wilde Stephen Hawking auf einer Neujahrsparty 1963 kennenlernt, war der extravagante, blasierte Student aus Oxford bereits schwerkrank. Die beiden heiraten, obwohl Stephens Lebenserwartung damals nicht einmal zwei Jahre betrug. Aber es folgten 25 gemeinsame Jahre: Jahre, in denen Jane ein Schattendasein führt, im Wissenschaftsbetrieb der damaligen Zeit nur als Beiwerk geduldet. Zugleich pflegt sie ihren Mann rund um die Uhr, bekommt drei Kinder mit ihm und erwirbt dazwischen selbst den Doktortitel. Jane Hawking erzählt vom verzweifelten Kampf um Selbstbehauptung, von der Liebe zu einem Mann, in dessen verfallenem Körper der vielleicht größte Geist unserer Zeit steckt, vom bitteren Showdown ihrer Ehe - und zuletzt von Versöhnung und der Macht der Freundschaft
