Experiments End - an evening of live art, music and video

8 July, 2010, Barkers House Farm, Lancaster University

Scarlett Thomas at Litfest

25 May, 2010, The Auditorium, The Storey, Lancaster

In a special event organised by Litfest in collaboration with Lancaster University's Experimentality programme, Scarlett Thomas read from and discussed her latest novel, Our Tragic Universe.

'I was reading about the end of the universe when I got a text message from my friend Libby . . .' If Kelsey Newman's theory about the end of time is true, we are all going to live forever. But for Meg – locked in a dead-end relationship and with a deadline long-gone for a book that she can't write – this thought fills her with dread. Meg is lost in a labyrinth of her own devising. But could there be an important connection between a wild beast living on Dartmoor, a ship in a bottle, the science of time, a knitting pattern for the shape of the universe and the Cottingley Fairies? Or is her life just one long chain of coincidences? Smart, entrancing and buzzing with big ideas, Our Tragic Universe is a book about how relationships are created and destroyed, and how a story might just save your life.
