If you had the chance, would you want to live forever? Broke, years behind on her novel, and in a dead-end relationship, Meg Carpenter jumps at the chance to review a pseudoscientific book that promises life everlasting. Scarlett Thomas, author of international bestseller The End of Mr. Y, reads from her newest novel. Hot off the press, Our Tragic Universe is a book about how relationships are created and destroyed, how we can rewrite our futures (and even our histories), and how stories might just save our lives.
