In MOBIUS DICK, physicist John Ringer, receives a mysterious text message that triggers an investigation into the development of new mobile phone technology in a research facility outside a remote Scottish village. Already the world is becoming a very different place: amnesia, telepathy, false memory and inexplicable coincidences all seem to be occurring more frequently with humorous, brain teasing results. Could quantum experiments have caused the collapse of our universe's space-time continuum? Could the multi layered text we are reading come from another world altogether?
`Crumey is one of my three or four favourite modern writers - a wise, funny, alert and original novelist who has never disappointed' - Jonathan Coe
'I loved it! Just exhilerating!' - Fay Weldon
But while Mobius Dick is a work of sophisticated erudition, its playfulness and artistry make it a page-turner, too. It is perhaps the only novel about quantum mechanics you could imagine reading while lying on a beach. - Joseph O'Connor
'solid plutonium, and unflaggingly enjoyable' - Sunday Times
'the most rewarding book I have read all year' - Independent On Sunday
It would be nice to think that this magnificent piece of work stood a chance of winning the Booker. It's certainly my novel of the year. - Time Out
'There's no room here to do justice to the density of ideas Crumey unpacks with admirable lightness. - Sunday Herald
