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.
'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
