Subatomic particles, String Theory, the Special Theory of Relativity, Black holes, CERN, the Big Bang, hot and cold Dark Matter, the complex nature of the fabric of mass in the universe, how planets are formed, how time and space actually relate to other dimensions, the search for the elusive Higg's boson: not one of these cosmically exciting topics are covered in this novel. No, this is the tale of Alza's marathon shag fest with a young female student. Alza, a maverick Cambridge Professor undergoes a text book mid-life crisis and meets a 25 year old student. Unwittingly he becomes entangled in her chaotic world which revolves around lashings of sordid sex, drugs and criminal activity. Despite the age gap, they enjoy a summer of incandescent sex and general mischief. He attempts to reform her nefarious bohemian ways but it backfires and causes him to completely re-evaluate his own lifestyle. As with most things in Alza's life, there is an unexpected final twist and he is left with blood on his hands. If you are not a control freak and prefer a life less ordinary and a laugh in a faster lane, this particular brief history of time may entertain you as the world catches fire!And, no, you can't get your money back!
