JELLYFISH HAVE EYES by Joram Piatigorsky

“A sensitive drama about an aged scientist in an anti-intellectual era.” (Kirkus Review, vol. 87, February 2019)

“Jellyfish Have Eyes” is the “somewhat autobiographical” story of an eminent scientist whose study of jellyfish eyes earns him condemnation rather than acclaim.” (Ellyn Wexler, Montgomery County Gazette, October 2014)

“Piatigorsky’s debut novel is a suspenseful thriller mixing the biological sciences – and politics. It is a rollicking tale… and deserves a wide audience. “ (Kensington Park Friends of the Library, November 2015)

“A wonderful book for those who love creativity, science and the great gifts of serendipity.” (Barbara Esstman, author, The Other Anna and Night Ride Home)

In this original and provocative combination of science and fiction, Joram Piatigorsky brings to life evidence of Dr. Johnson’s observation that Truth can be made more accessible when draped in the robes of Fiction. (Warren Poland, MD, Psychoanalyst, author, Melting the Darkness)

“Piatigorsky’s imaginative account of Dr. Ricardo Sztein’s path from discovery to condemnation gives a chilling warning that is sure to stimulate debate on the role of government in dictating the direction of basic research.” (Joseph Horwitz, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor, UCLA School of Medicine)
