A distinctive, witty and hugely inventive novel of ideas by Andrew Crumey. His previous novels have been widely praised and have won several prizes. 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? Praise for MR. MEE "brilliantly funny celebration of misunderstanding" Michael Holroyd, Sunday Times "Fans of Tom Stoppard and Michael Frayn will relish this novel's puzzles and paradoxes" Hilary Mantel "In short - it's fabulous." Jonathan Coe "Andrew Crumey is one of the most original novelists around." Miranda Seymour, New Statesman "Books Of The Year" "a perfectly manipulated voice. . . deadpan humour . . . all the tangled threads resolve into a beautifully executed pattern which is oddly moving." Roy Foster, Financial Times "Books Of The Year"

Andrew Crumey has a PhD in theoretical physics and is liteary editor of Scotland On Sunday. His novels have been translated widely, and won several prizes.Review:
"'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"
