My Father, Marconi

Book - 1996
Rate this:
In this book, Marconi's daughter, Degna recounts his scientific achievements. More importantly, she gives an intimate portrait of his turbulent personal life. The single-minded dedication that changed the world played havoc with the lives of those around him. His marriage ended in divorce, followed by an annulment from the Roman Catholic church. His children became outcasts in their native Italy, totally estranged from their father and disinherited by him. The result could have been bitterness. However, as this book reveals, there was forgiveness, warmth and understanding. Degna Marconi draws a touching and poignant account of her father. Her writing reflects her Edwardian childhood and her Italian heritage. The result is a charming portrait of the man whose name became a household word.
