Our Tragic Universe

Author(s): Scarlett Thomas

Fiction | No Category

Could a story save your life? If Kelsey Newman's theory about the end of time is true, we are all going to live forever. But who would want that?

Certainly not Meg, a bright spark trapped in a hopeless relationship. But if she can work out the connection between a wild beast on Dartmoor, a ship in a bottle, the science of time, a knitting pattern for the shape of the universe, she might just find a way out.

Product Information

'Is it odd to describe a book as kind? The commodity itself seems an increasingly rare thing in an internet-frazzled world, and so how unexpectedly wonderful to read Scarlett Thomas's Our Tragic Universe, a book that brims with a compassion and warmth' Patrick Ness, Guardian

Scarlett Thomas was born in London in 1972. Her previous novels include Bright Young Things, Going Out, PopCo and The End of Mr. Y, which was longlisted for the Orange Broadband Prize for Fiction 2007. She teaches at the University of Kent.
