About the Book

Joan Rothman Brill presents the life story and 1918 marriage diary of her parents, David and Ruth Samuel Rothman. David Rothman was forced to leave school after the eighth grade in order to help support his family. However his thirst for knowledge and self-study led to his friendship with an icon who changed man's concept of the universe. David Rothman relates, through taped reminiscences, his word-for-word intellectual discussions and musical evenings with Dr. Albert Einstein.


About the Author

Joan Brill is uniquely qualified to present David Rothman's tape-recorded description of his friendship with Albert Einstein, since David Rothman is Ms. Brill's father. Ms. Brill met Dr. Einstein, and was present at many of the events that are described in the narrative. Joan Brill is also a Juilliard-trained pianist-harpsichordist, with degrees from Long Island University and SUNY at Stony Brook.
