Home > Our Tragic Universe by Scarlett Thomas
Meg Carpenter is trying to write a literary novel, rather than the genre fiction she’s been churning out in order to pay the rent, but she can’t figure out where to start or what it’s about. On her creative journey she has philosophical conversations with her friends and tries to sort out her relationship with her longtime beau. Our Tragic Universe is about everything and nothing and our place in the everything-nothingness and is compelling meta-fiction. Fans of I Heart Huckabees will love this. It nearly melted my brain, but it was worth it!
