Description

The book that influenced writers from Carl Sagan to Stephen Hawking, Flatland is set in a two-dimensional world where life exists only in lines and shapes – until one of its inhabitants, ‘A. Square’, has his perspective transformed forever. This brilliantly eccentric classic is an invitation to see beyond our own reality.

‘At once a playful brainteaser about geometry, a pointed satire of Victorian manners – and a strangely compelling argument about the greatest mysteries of the Universe’ Wall Street Journal

‘Flatland could lead to very profound thought about our Universe and ourselves’ Isaac Asimov

Publisher Review

At once a classic of science fiction, a playful brainteaser about geometry, a pointed satire of Victorian manners - and, finally, a strangely compelling argument about reason, faith, and the greatest mysteries of the universe * The Wall Street Journal *
