520    "Marie Curie was the first person to be honored by two 
       Nobel Prizes and she pioneered the use of radiation 
       therapy for cancer patients. But she was also a mother, 
       widowed young, who raised two extraordinary daughters 
       alone: Irene, a Nobel Prize winning chemist in her own 
       right, who played an important role in the development of 
       the atomic bomb, and Eve, a highly regarded humanitarian 
       and journalist, who fought alongside the French Resistance
       during WWII. As a woman fighting to succeed in a male 
       dominated profession and a Polish immigrant caught in a 
       xenophobic society, she had to find ways to support her 
       research. Drawing on personal interviews with Curie's 
       descendents, as well as revelatory new archives, this is a
       wholly new story about Marie Curie--and a family of women 
       inextricably connected to the dawn of nuclear physics"--
