Billy the Lad. Nihilistic Petruchio. Rational Juliet. Kerry the Seductress. A reckless student house in Glasgow, Scotland, where beds are as freely shared as drugs, liquor, and cigarettes. It's all good fun until Juliet finds a corpse under the staircase--which promptly disappears. Told with the clever intensity of The Secret History and set against the same brash backdrop as Trainspotting, H. R. McGregor's dark tale traces five students whose indulgent lifestyle spirals out into a maze of betrayal and, ultimately, murder. Juliet takes the quantum theory of Schrodinger's cat--polar opposites can coexist--to its next generation and begins to wonder if truth and lies are one and the same.
Schrodinger's Baby is a remarkable novel destined to become one of the most admired debuts of the season.
