Making History/Fry, Stephen/Paper/0099457067/S037-E
'His best novel yet ... An extravagant, deeply questioning work of science fiction.' - GQ.
Michael Young is convinced his brilliant history thesis will win him a doctorate, a pleasant academic post, a venerable academic publisher and his beloved girlfriend, Jane.
An historian ought to know better than to think he can predict the future. Leo Zuckermann is an ageing physicist obsessed with the darkest period in human history, utterly driven by his fanatical hatred of one. A lover's childish revenge and the breaking of a rotten clasp cause the two men to meet in a blizzard of swirling pages. Pages of history. When they come together, nothing - past, present or future - will ever be the same again.
'A sci-fi comedy that is also a time-travel thriller, constantly topical and always surprising ... packed with the author's personal enthusiasms and hatreds, the former red-hot and the latter icy-black.' - Literary Review.
'A powerful imaginative pull that keeps the pages turning while the tea goes cold and the cat gets the goldfish.' - Independent.
