Natalie Portman and her immediate family have much to celebrate, and the oscar win was just the icing on the cake.
Winning awards one after another, Natalie is awaiting her own prized possession, her child with Black Swan co-star, Benjamin Millepied. Portman’s father, Dr. Avner Hershlag, is ready to welcome one more little patient into this world, his grandchild.
In addition to all the accolades, Dr. Avner Hershlag is now also a novelist. He has found time to write “from 3 to 5 in the morning.”
“Misconception” is a medical-political thriller. Drawing on Hershlag’s experience in his field, it’s a fast-paced mix of scientific fact and fiction. The book, set in Washington, DC, centers on Dr. Anya Krim, the first lady’s fertility specialist, who makes house calls to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. There’s also a conservative US senator whose comatose daughter is suddenly pregnant, a severed head in a tank of frozen nitrogen, purloined embryos and even human cloning.
