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."
"A delight, not least for the quality of Scarlett Thomas's writing... Full of life and energy."
