About this ebook

“Adams writes with equal parts wit and heart. He has that George Saunders knack to keep me giggling and flipping pages, and then suddenly, he sneaks up with visceral poignancy. This book is a blast.” —Joshua Mohr, author of Model Citizen

Relativity is a sharp, witty careening ride of a novel about three middle-aged men coming to terms with what they want—and don’t—from their lives. Insightful, compassionate, and compulsively readable.” —Stephanie Reents, author of The Kissing List

Harry Erickson believes he’s disproven Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity. Dennis Drysdale is in love with a woman he knew from high school. Timothy Henderson wants to professionally play video games.

When Harry accidentally burns his house down in a freak chicken Kiev accident, it sets events into motion that allow the three friends to pursue their individual dreams.

The trio embark on a road trip to Chicago in pursuit of their destinies and find themselves at the University of Chicago Physics department, a video game tournament, and a lunch date at Panera Bread.

Relativity is a captivating wild romp fueled with the aspirations of three men who are on a quest to dedicate their lives to their ridiculous dreams in this thought-provoking and satirical novel of friendship and finding oneself.
