paperback    ISBN 13: 9781847671295 | ISBN 10: 1847671292

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. For Meg - locked in a hopeless relationship and creatively uninspired - this thought fills her with dread. But could there be an important connection to be made 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? And could a story offer a way through her own personal labyrinth?

"Our Tragic Universe is a huge, ambitious experiment, carried out by one of the finest minds of her generation."
(SFX magazine)
"A delight, not least for the quality of Scarlett Thomas's writing... Full of life and energy."
(Philip Pullman)
