Description

Coulter Zahn sees reality differently than others. Much like light can theoretically be in all places at once, Coulter sees multiple versions of his life. A promising PhDcandidate at MIT, he and his young wife are nervously expecting their first child. When his dissertation comes under intense criticism, his estranged mother returns,and Sara tells him she's leaving him, Coulter's already delicate mental state becomes further fragmented.One evening, with his life and mental health unraveling, Coulter loses control, irreparably changing the course of the lives around him. But the very next morning, hecatches a break in his research, discovering the true shape of the universe. Influenced by those around him and his own untrustworthy psyche, Coulter must decidewhether to face the consequences of his actions or finish his research, perhaps making the greatest contribution to science since Einstein's theory of relativity.An existential psychological thriller, An Elegant Theory explores how the construction of memory and consciousness can shape motive, guilt, and identity throughthe lens of a modern-day mad-scientist motif.
