When Helen receives a phone call from her former college roommate Charlie in "Lost and Wanted," the event is unexpected not only because the two had lost touch, but because Charlie had died the night before. So begins Nell Freudenberger’s latest novel, which follows Helen, a theoretical physics professor at MIT, as she wraps her scientific mind around Charlie’s calls and texts from beyond the grave. Nell Freudenberger joins us in the studio to discuss science, human relationships and the laws of the universe that unite the two.
