'Ingenious and compelling' THE TIMES, BOOKS OF THE MONTH
'Mind-bendingly clever and utterly gripping' DAILY MAIL
'A fascinating and assured debut' THE GUARDIAN

It's 1962 and physics student Grace Pulansky believes she has met the man of her dreams, Robert Jones, while serving up slices of pecan pie at the local diner. But then the FBI shows up, with their fedoras and off-the-rack business suits, and accuses him of being a bomb-planting mass-murderer.

Finding herself on the run with Jones across America's Southwest, the discoveries awaiting Gracie will undermine everything she knows about the universe. Her story will reveal how scores of lives - an identity-swapping rock star, a mourning lover in ancient China, Nazi hunters in pursuit of a terrible secret, a crazed artist in pre-revolutionary France, an astronaut struggling with a turbulent interplanetary future, and many more - are interconnected across space and time by love, grief, and quantum entanglement.

Spanning continents, centuries, and dimensions, this exquisitely crafted and madly inventive novel - a triple-disk, concept-album of a book - is a profound yet propulsive enquiry into the nature of reality - the perfect immersive read for fans of David Mitchell, Emily St. John Mandel, Neil Gaiman and Margaret Atwood.

'A book designed to be more than the sum of its parts, and one that achieves that because love is the thing that binds it together. Vitally fresh' DOMINIC NOLAN

'With strong echoes of David Mitchell, Haruki Murakami or Emily St John Mandel...this is a madcap ride to somewhere new with thrills to spare and a gallery of truly fascinating characters. One for the ages.' CRIME TIME

'A trans-dimensional, kaleidoscopic mystery-box of a novel.... wholly and riotously original. Haddon is a mad scientist of genre and his epic is a tour de force.' PETER HO DAVIES

“Wow! Genius, touching story”

A mind-bending, reality-altering corker of a novel. Hats off to Cole Haddon for this complex achievement. A book of this magnitude with so many dangling threads feels vast but so rewarding as connections are made and... More

“One to read, recommend and then read again”

It’s incredible how so many stories are woven together, but, complex and absorbing, it works and it works wonderfully. At first it reminded me of Ayn Rand, but I think this book really has developed its own niche. I... More

“Breathtaking and breathtakingly original”

Though I didn't know what to expect, I was taken from the first page. The characters lifted off the page and I quickly felt swept up in a complex but deftly handled swirl of intertwining narratives. Refreshingly... More
