A novel by

 
 
From the disturbing goings-on in a South London mental hospital, the narrator hurtles back through the past, to the character of Kit, Isaac Newton's niece. What unfolds is the story of the early 18th century, a time when Newton and others were claiming the meaning of the world to themselves.
