'I was reading about the end of the universe when I got a text message from my friend Libby...' If Kelsey Newman's theory about the end of time is true, we are all going to live forever. But for Meg - locked in a hopeless relationship and with a deadline long-gone for a book that she can't write - this thought fills her with dread. Meg is lost in a labyrinth of her own devising. But could there be an important connection between a wild beast living on Dartmoor, a ship in a bottle, the science of time, a knitting pattern for the shape of the universe and the Cottingley Fairies? Or is her life just one long chain of coincidences? Smart, entrancing and buzzing with big ideas, Our Tragic Universe is a book about how relationships are created and destroyed, and how a story might just save your life.

“A Keeper”

Confession: I avoided people just to be able to finish this.

“Brilliant!”

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Our Tragic Universe. It is more reality based than Scarlett Thomas’ other novels and has a slightly more grown up feel because of it. Like her other books it’s focussed around a heroine... More

“An excellent read”

If, like me, you loved 'The End of Mr Y" then you won't be disappointed with Scarlett Thomas' new novel, 'Our Tragic Universe'. This one isn't quite as off-the-wall as the earlier... More
