The End of Mr. Y

by Scarlett Thomas
£7.99   paperback  Cannongate Books (2008)

The End of Mr. Y by Scarlett Thomas When Ariel Manto uncovers a copy of The End of Mr. Y in a second-hand bookshop, she can't believe her eyes. She knows enough about its author, the outlandish Victorian scientist Thomas Lumas, to know that copies are exceedingly rare. And, some say, cursed.
 
With Mr. Y under her arm, Ariel finds herself thrust into a thrilling adventure of love, sex, death and time-travel.

"Ingenious and original. A cracking good yarn, fizzing with intelligence."
(Philip Pullman)
"A masterpiece . . . A brilliant, engaging story that makes you rethink the nature of existence and the true structure of the world."
(Douglas Coupland)
