Michael Young is convinced his brilliant history thesis will win him a doctorate, a pleasant academic post, a venerable academic publisher and his beloved girlfriend Jane. A historian should know better than to imagine that he can predict the future. Leo Zuckerman is an ageing physicist obsessed with the darkest period in human history, utterly driven by his fanatical hatred of one man. A lover's childish revenge and the breaking of a rotten clasp cause the two men to meet in a blizzard of swirling pages. Pages of history. When they come together nothing - past, present or future - will ever be the same again.

"Stephen Fry at his twinkling best" * Sunday Times * "His best novel yet ... an extravagant, deeply questioning work of science fiction" * GQ * "A sci-fi comedy that is also a time-travel thriller, constantly topical and always surprising... packed with the author's personal enthusiasm and hatreds, the former red-hot and the latter icy-black" * Literary Review * "A powerful imaginative pull that keeps the pages turning while the tea goes cold and the cat gets the goldfish" * The Independent * "A sprightly and entertaining read" * Daily Telegraph *
