The story of the world's most famous scientist as you've never read it before.

'A literary gem' - Ian McEwan

Princeton. New Jersey.
14th March 1954

'Albert Einstein speaking.'
'Who?' asks the girl on the telephone.
'I'm sorry,' she says. 'I have the wrong number.'
'You have the right number,' Albert says.

From a wrong number to a friendship that would impact both their lives, Albert Einstein Speaking begins with the meeting of two very different minds - the world's most respected scientist and a schoolgirl from New Jersey.

Riotous, charming and tender, R.J. Gadney's novel spans almost a century and shines a light on the man behind the myth.
