Summary
Spanning multiple worlds, this stylistically complex, yet accessible, novel tracks the intersecting lives of several characters. There's Henry Lytten, a 1960s Oxford scholar; Angela Meersen, a "psychomathematician" from a dystopian future world who has discovered a method of accessing parallel universes; and Jay, a precocious young man from Anterworld, a universe created by Meersen based on Lytten's writings -- an "Arcadia" visited by Rosie Wilson, an otherwise ordinary British teenager who can travel between dimensions. -- Description by Gillian Speace
