Another book copy presents it as three women 's stories, but certainl it 's a tory of Magnus, a research eurologist, and his elationships with four women -- his grandmothe, Margaret, his fiance, Malena, his research colleague, Simone, and an unnamed woman in a coma.

It 's never an easy book to com to the heart of.
