"The Milestones Cabaret: My Tale of Science and Music"
In addition to Marion O' Leary's career as a scientist, he is also a pianist and composer. His recent memoir, Musical Milestones: My Tale of Science and Music, uses narrative and music to explore how the initial tension between music and science has gradually resolved itself. In The Milestones Cabaret he tells the stories and plays the music that have formed his identity as a scientist and musician.
