Go Spotting: Allegra Goodman ’s novel “Intuition”

Friday July 6, 2012

Go makes an appearance in Allegra Goodman ’s 2006 novel Intuition, reports Debbie  Siemon. “After the author introduces a couple of secondary characters as ‘geniuses,’ they show up at a picnic (at Walden Pond, no less),” says Siemon. The reference, on page 164, reads “Next to the drinks cooler, Jacob and Aaron sat playing Go on towels in the sand.”  The novel is “an intricate mystery and a rich human drama set in the high-stakes atmosphere of a prestigious research institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts.”
