Product description


'A witty examination of the ways in which so many of our beliefs about reality slip through our fingers when we attempt to seize them.' -- Sunday Times

'Anyone who thinks philosophy boring should try Michael Frayn, a novelist and playwright, on the subject here. His sense of wonder...never leaves him and his prose shines throughout.' -- Sunday Telegraph

'Crackles with humour, erudition and wisdom. In an age of increasing specialisation, his polymathy is a protean delight.' -- The Times

Book Description

The Human Touch: Our Part in the Creation of the Universe is a fascinating search for an understanding of philosophy, cosmology, language and the big questions of life, from Michael Frayn, the award-winning author of Spies, Skios and Headlong.
