Maxwell's demon

Image of item
Book

First Grove Atlantic hardcover edition.

"Thomas Quinn is having a hard time. A failed novelist, he's stuck writing short stories and audio scripts for other people's characters while his wife, Imogen, is working on a remote island halfway around the world. The bills are piling up, the dirty dishes are stacking in the sink, and the whole world seems to be hurtling toward entropic collapse. Then he gets a voicemail from his father, who has been dead for seven years. Thomas's relationship with Stanley Quinn-a world-famous writer and erstwhile absent father-was always shaky, not least because Stanley always seemed to prefer his enigmatic protege Andrew Black to his own son. Yet after Black published his first book, which went on to sell over a million copies, he disappeared completely. Now strange things are happening to Thomas, and he can't help but wonder if Black is tugging at the seams of his world behind the scenes. Absurdly brilliant, wildly entertaining, and utterly mind-bending, Maxwell's Demon triumphantly excavates the ways we construct meaning in a world where chaotic collapse looms closer every day"--
