"Abundant fun...An intelligent, whimsical, nondogmatic roller coaster of a novel." - Kirkus Reviews
Just past actuality and third universe on the left...Emily Branwell wakes up one morning with a hangover and finds her horoscope is astoundingly accurate, sausages keep appearing out of nowhere all around her, and she can walk through walls. That is confusing enough, but when a huge, threatening shadow appears in the sky, Emily must solve the riddle of her rapidly disintegrating world before reality itself collapses. Maybe next time she'll count her drinks. Plato's Cave takes a humorous look at humanity's search for truth and the meaning of existence through the eyes of someone who wishes the Universe would just stop bothering her.
