Summary

"In a fiery (gridded) universe, the wild birds of life are slowly domesticated and for a while end up as wall features in the upholstered comfort of the reader's lounge room. But the universe has other plans, and the book itself takes flight so that poor Yorick (our reader) must return, with flaming brains, to his origins in the stars. This small book is a fast-forward gush through one version of postmodern cosmology."-http://www.lynashby.com/Wall%20to%20Wall.html, viewed July 2016.
