How to enjoy the big bang while avoiding the black holes
Does happiness sit the in the genes, waiting to the unmasked, waiting for you to discover, by accident, the right sequence of tricks to set it in motion?
Delia is a scientist whose life and career have stalled. She is the mother of a son who is ready to grow up. Her husband George is Warden of a University College - and warden of a secret self.
Delia searches for a happy outcome in the game of life. But in a world of topsy-turvy logic and perspective, where science seems to have fallen from grace, she finds no central paradigm to appeal to when face to face with the big questions. To the sublime question, What is love?, Delia finds unexpected answers, and discovers that the idea of a loving saviour is more powerful than she ever would have believed.
A classic comedy 'Against Gravity' is not simply funny, it is a profoundly witty investigation of morals, the debate between science and religion, and life as a kind of divine joke.
