As the defiant but sensitive young genius is creating his theory of relativity, a new conception of time, he imagines many possible worlds. In one, time is circular, so that people are fated to repeat triumphs and failures over and over. In another, there is a place where time stands still, visited by lovers and parents clinging to their children. In another, time is a nightingale, sometimes trapped by a bell jar.

Einstein's Dreams Review
Einstein's Dreams  is a novel by Alan Lightman that was an international bestseller and has been translated into thirty languages. The novel has been used in numerous colleges and universities, in many cases for university-wide adoptions in "common-book"   programs. Einstein's Dreams was first adapted for the stage by David Gardiner and Ralf Remshardt and performed at the University of Florida in An off-off-Broadway production of this stage version ran briefly at the New York Fringe Festival in ; it has also been performed in Beijing
Nonetheless, he wrote much of his groundbreaking papers during this time and emerged as a leading scientist shortly thereafter. In the book, a fictional Einstein dreams of a new conception of time in every new chapter, sometimes incorporating the actual consequences of special relativity. But this book goes well beyond the scope of physics. Each new concept of time raises new questions in the realms of psychology, ethics, and metaphysics. Eventually the higher, slow-motion residents start snubbing their elevation-challenged peers, but some develop an insatiable compulsion to live at the highest point possible. Meanwhile, others take a more down-to-earth view.
