Philip Leroux, an Oxford Philosophy Don, has just completed a major work of scholarship - the biography of the 19th century Russian emigre thinker Alexander Herzen. Almost simultaneously, his college colleague Moser, a geneticist and natural philosopher, is found to have died, perhaps by his own hand. In grief and bewilderment, Leroux sits down to write: about Moser and their friendship, about Moser's struggles with scientific orthodoxy, about their love affairs and about ideas of freedom and necessity in the world of creative thought. The journal grows into a meditation on biography, passion, jealousy and obsession, all informed by Herzen's compassionate philosophy.
