Synopsis: In a futuristic society that serves as the setting for this elegantly chilling novel, the State decides whom one will choose as ones mate. In any case, professional boundaries cannot be crossed, and thus the young mathematician Haldane IV cannot fall in love with or marry the girl of his choice, the poet Helix. But as the young couple study ever more closely the long-hidden poems of Fairweather I - whose work years before had completely altered the whole nature of society and who is universally acknowledged to be the greatest mathematician since Einstein - they realise the verses hold important messages for them - and for the world.... 'That he who loses wins the race... That parallel lines must meet in space..."
