'Crumey is one of my three or four favourite modern writers - a wise, funny, alert and original novelist who has never disappointed' Jonathan Coe 'I loved it! Just exhilerating!' Fay Weldon In Mobius Dick, physicist John Ringer, receives a mysterious text message that triggers an investigation into the development of new mobile phone technology in a research facility outside a remote Scottish village. Already the world is becoming a very different place: amnesia, telepathy, false memory and inexplicable coincidences all seem to be occurring more frequently with humorous, brain teasing results. Could quantum experiments have caused the collapse of our universe's space-time continuum? Could the multi layered text we are reading come from another world altogether? 'While Mobius Dick is a work of sophisticated erudition, its playfulness and artistry make it a page-turner, too. It is perhaps the only novel about quantum mechanics you could imagine reading while lying on a beach.' Joseph O'Connor 'Solid plutonium, and unflaggingly enjoyable' Sunday Times 'The most rewarding book I have read all year' Independent On Sunday 'It would be nice to think that this magnificent piece of work stood a chance of winning the Booker. It's certainly my novel of the year.' Time Out 'There's no room here to do justice to the density of ideas Crumey unpacks with admirable lightness.' Sunday Herald
