Please Mr Einstein

I was reading this book last month. It was like reading the part II of one of my favourite book "Surely you're joking Mr Feynman". This book is about a young woman who meets Mr Einstein. They both discuss concepts of time, space, relativity and Einstein's responsibility in the creation of nuclear weapons.
Jean-Claude Carriere's fiction was a fun to read. Both the characters try to explain physics concepts, god, society and the problem of being famous in a very witty but simple way. It reminds me one of Einstein's own quote "You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother".
