Description
What would that universe be like if human beings were not here to observe it? Would there be still be numbers, or scientific laws? Would the universe even be vast, without our tininess to give it scale? A former journalist, a playwright whose works range from Noises Off to Copenhagen, and a novelist whose Spies won the 2002 Whitbread Prize for Fiction, Michael Frayn is also a leading translator of Anton Chekhov and the husband of biographer and critic Claire Tomalin. In this dazzling nonfiction book he tackles these mind-boggling questions head-on, and explores the ideas behind his brilliant, funny, and hugely popular work.

"Compelling reading—Frayn is a disarmingly persuasive guide as we accompany him on an exhilarating intellectual journey."—Times (London)
