Books Info:

Schrodinger's Ball free pdf "Tender, hilarious, and packed with delightful surprises . . . If Einstein and John Cleese had written a novel together, this would be it."
-Joseph Weisberg, author of "10th Grade"
Four friends set out into the night in Cambridge, Massachusetts, undeterred by the fact that one of them might actually be dead. Deb has perfected the half-hour orgasm. Grant, a geek, desperately desires Deb. Depressed Arlene has just improbably slept with Johnny, their leader, who recently and accidentally shot himself to death.
But is he (or anyone) alive or dead until he's observed to be by someone else? Maybe not, according to Dr. Erwin Schrodinger, the renowned physicist (1887--1961) who is, strangely, still ambling through the Ivy League town, offering opinions and proofs about how our perceptions can bring to life-and, in turn, reduce and destroy-other people and ourselves. And what does Schrodinger have to do with the President of Montana, who just declared war on the rest of the country, or the Harvard Square bag lady who is rewriting the history of the world? What's the significance of the cat in the box, the "miracle molecule," or the discarded piece of luncheon meat?
Answer: All will collide by the end of this hypersmart, supersexy, madly moving novel that crosses structural inventiveness with easygoing accessibility, the United States with our internal states of being, philosophy with fiction. In Adam Felber's dazzling debut, science and humanity collide in a kaleidoscopic story that is as hilarious as death and as heartbreaking as love.
Praise:
"A jangle of provocative absurdities playing off a pair of lovers so winning that readers, like the audiences at the old Hollywood romantic comedies, will all but rent ladders to uncross the stars that guide and misguide their efforts.... ["Schrodinger's Ball" is] a romantic fantasy in three-quarter time, as brainy as it is airy, and unhinged either way."-"The New York Times"
"Felber has done the impossible: he's made quantum theory seem hysterically funny and Cambridge, Massachusetts seem like a place of strange magic. "Schrodinger's Ball" is a great read that will blind you with science and laughter."-Chris Regan, writer for "The Daily Show" and co-author of "America (The Book)"
"[A] crackling comic novel...[Felber] frolics in the fields of science....His wit and linguistic acrobatics make this clever mind-bender worth the ride.-"Booklist"
"It's smart, it's funny, it's got heart. All this and an umlaut too! "Schrodinger's Ball" is thoroughly lively."-Roy Blount Jr., author of "Roy Blount's Book of Southern Humor"
"If Einstein and John Cleese had written a novel together, this would be it. Felber creates a world that is both completely real and totally enchanted. Tender, hilarious, and packed with delightful surprises, "Schrodinger's Ball" is even more original than other really original books."-Joseph Weisberg, author of "Tenth Grade"
"There's no uncertainty about it. "Schrodinger's Ball" once and for all proves the Adam Felber theory of comic novel writing: a book can be rollickingly funny, sharply satirical, romantic, and endearing-"and" involve quantum physics."-Mo Rocca, author of "All the Presidents' Pets: The Story of One Reporter Who Refused to Roll Over"
""Schrodinger's Ball" is as funny as hell, charming and kind, and perceptive and moving. Adam Felber has an amazing feel for the interior lives of his characters, even while using the shifting points-of-view of a David Foster Wallace."-Peter Sagal, host of NPR's "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!"
"[A] raucous, willfully absurd debut...designed to expose the beautiful randomness of existence....Felber has embraced postmodern fiction's favorite themes...and turned it into a work of broad comedy instead of a fit of fatalistic handwringing."-"Kirkus Reviews"
"Few novels attempting a deliberately bad explanation of the uncertainty principle could surpass this inspired romp....Felber's debut is illogically, warmly entertaining."-"Publishers Weekly
