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. But who would want that? Certainly not Meg, a bright spark trapped in a hopeless relationship. But if she can work out the connection between a wild beast on Dartmoor, a ship in a bottle, the science of time a knitting pattern for the shape of the universe, she might just find a way out.

Our Tragic Universe surprised me, and in such a terrific way. It is so addictive, you can't help but fall deeper and deeper under Scarlett Thomas's spell. She's a genius -- Douglas Coupland Thomas can discuss quantum physics and philosophy while making you think you're reading a sparkling romantic comedy -- Kate Saunders * The Times * Is it odd to describe a book as kind? The commodity itself seems an increasingly rare thing in an internet-frazzled world, and so how unexpectedly wonderful to read Scarlett Thomas's Our Tragic Universe, a book that brims with a compassion and warmth -- Patrick Ness * Guardian * A delight, not least for the quality of Scarlett Thomas's writing... Full of life and energy. -- Philip Pullman Our Tragic Universe is a huge, ambitious experiment, carried out by one of the finest minds of her generation. * SFX magazine * Warm and Brainy -- Colin Waters * Sunday Herald * Thomas is excellent on emotional tangles and meandering plotlines that still manage to mean something. -- Lesley McDowell * Independent on Sunday * Thomas' style is engaging and lures us into Meg's world. -- Alastair Mabbott * Herald *
