Bridge

£18.99

In infinite parallel universes, there’s a version of you who already has everything you’ve ever wanted. But 24 year old drop-out Bridge is paralysed, by all the other lives she could have lived, the choices she could have made, and now, whoever she’s supposed to be in the wake of her mother’s premature death. They’ve always had a complicated relationship. Jo was the teenage runaway turned maverick neuroscientist who threw everything away chasing after an impossibility – a mysterious artefact – the dreamworm – that allows you to switch between realities. And now she’s dead and any chance of reconciliation with her. But is Jo really gone … or only in this universe?

Page-turning and ambitious, BRIDGE is a dazzlingly inventive speculative thriller with an unforgettable cast of characters, and the work of a novelist at the height of her powers.

‘Lauren Beukes takes a story filled with psychedelic drugs, parallel worlds, and neuroscience and makes it also about a complex mother-daughter relationship, full of darkness, light, and longing. This is fun and insane and very moving’ Mariana Enriquez, author of Our Share of Night

‘Lauren Beukes’ multiverse is thrilling-balancing madness, horror, and a big, bleeding, beating heart that reminds us that we are all connected in the end’ Grady Hendrix

‘Bridge spiders out into alternate universes, alternate selves, yet manages to be very much about us and our fractured now. It’s a humane, thought-provoking puzzle box, and a wildly entertaining novel’ Paul Tremblay, bestselling author of The Cabin at the End of the World and The Pallbearers Club
