Our Tragic Universe by Scarlett Thomas

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.

‘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?
