TITLEMadame Curie: A Biography
CITYNew York, NY

This biography of scientist Madame Marie Curie was written by her younger daughter, Eve. The author tells the story of her mother’s amazing life, from her miserable childhood to her marriage to Pierre Curie and his sudden death, to her scientific experiments and discoveries that won her the Nobel Prize. The first part of the book concentrates on her early life and vocations, while the second part describes her marriage to Pierre and her early scientific accomplishments, including the discovery of polonium and radium. The final part chronicles her later successes, life during World War I, her trip to America, and the end of her long, illustrious life. The author presents a somewhat biased and edited account of her mother's life and achievements.
