Description

Staff Pick
A ‘mathematical fantasy’ may not have instant appeal (although it is an accurate description), but this wholly strange novella could be read in any number of ways – a metaphor against intolerance, a satire on societal norms, an attack on inequality, or perhaps just a charmingly imaginative, if odd, tale of shapes.

The book that influenced writers from Carl Sagan to Stephen Hawking, Flatland is set in a two-dimensional world where life exists only in lines and shapes – until one of its inhabitants, ‘A. Square’, has his perspective transformed forever. This brilliantly eccentric classic is an invitation to see beyond our own reality.
