The Booker Prize-winning author of Amsterdam and Atonement here gives us a darkly hilarious view of planetary and personal peril. Michael Beard is a Nobel Prize-winning physicist whose best work is behind him, as well as a womanizer who has cheated on each of his five wives, and a compulsive overeater.
