Elena Rubik can't seem to stay dead. She persists: as a set of corneas, as a newsletter subscriber, as a member of fanfiction forums.

Her best friend Jules Valentine meanwhile is unwittingly inveigled into an indie-film turned corporate branding stunt. When Jules leaks information about the true story behind the video - by then an overworked viral meme - wannabe investigative reporter April Kuan is assigned the case. But as April trails Jules all over Perth she too becomes ensnared in the machinations of shady corporate interests as the very laws of physics and time begin to bend.

Rubik is a wide-ranging, brilliantly intertwined novel-in-stories that slips outside the borders of realism. Spotted with disappearances, mysteries and told with a sharp-edged wit and cutting social commentary, it is an original and ingenious reflection of technological anxiety, loneliness and connectivity in the internet age.

'...an irresistible game that bends and shimmers between the known and the strange. Dare to play it.' Jennifer Mills

'...wonderful, brilliant and mind-bending, and a worthy heir to the experimental tradition.' The Saturday Paper

'Tan is skilled enough to keep readers guessing about what the next mysterious movement might be. An intriguing, high-concept effort cut from the dame generational cloth as Tumblr.' Kirkus Reviews

'...it has true heart, and many of the characters are achingly full of pathos.' NPR

'...so clever and imaginative, it merits being part of the literary canon of great novels-in-stories.' Chicago Review of Books
