An aging writer, disillusioned with the state of literary culture, attempts to disappear in the most cosmically dramatic manner: travelling to the Hadron Collider, merging with the God particle, and transforming into an omnipresent deity - a meta-writer-capable of rewriting reality. With biting humour and a propulsive, contagious style, amid the accelerated particles of his characteristic obsessions - F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pink Floyd and The Kinks, 2001: A Space Odyssey, the links between great art and the lives of the artists who create it, Fresan takes us on a whirlwind tour.
