The Infinite Future is a mindbending novel that melds two page-turning books in one. The first tells the story of an obsessive librarian, a down-at-heel author, and a Mormon historian who go on the hunt for a mystical, life-changing book - and find it. In the second half, Wirkus gives us the lost masterpiece itself. The two halves connect in surprising and delightful ways to form a totally unique reading experience. Part academic satire, part science-fiction, and part book-lover's quest, this wholly original novel captures the heady way that stories inform and mirror our lives.
