Alone with You in the Ether

By Olivie Blake
Alone with You in the Ether by Olivie Blake digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Atlas Six comes an intimate and contemporary study of time, space, and the nature of love. Alone with You in the Ether explores what it means to be unwell, and how to face the fractures of yourself and still love as if you're not broken.

CHICAGO, SOMETIME--
Two people meet in the armory of the Art Institute by chance. Prior to their encounter, he is a doctoral student who manages his destructive thoughts with compulsive calculations about time travel; she is a bipolar counterfeit artist undergoing court-ordered psychotherapy. By the end of the story, these things will still be true.

But this is not a story about endings.

For Regan, life is a finish line of mutually assured disappointment. Her method of coping with the dreariness of existence is to project herself into imagined multipotency, spinning new threads of destiny with every impulsive decision she makes. For Aldo, life is a plague of constancy--a structure of rules and formulas that keep him going, without which the entire frame of his existence would collapse.

For both of them, life is a matter of resigning themselves to the blueprints of inevitability, until six conversations with a stranger form the variable that glitches the entire simulation.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

“This book is not for everyone, but it has found the right place in my brain.”
“I like it’s but it was just a bit too slow for me, to character driven I much prefer it when it’s plot driven too. I loved both their characters don’t get me wrong but my favourite parts of the book was when they were doing things and interacting with others, I also felt like the end was a bit rushed. But beautifully written and I think if I were to re read it again I would appreciate how wonderful the book is. (AKA I want to love it as much as everyone one else)”
“Bastant pretensiós i dramàtic, m’ha encantat”
