Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon, author of Nothing and Everywhere: A Moral Tale
The book’s hero, John Smith, is a poverty-stricken and regrettably named young novelist searching for a publisher.
One fine day, his shabby North London house is invaded by two masked and armed gangsters. They rob him at gunpoint, stealing the one object in his life, which is truly important and close to him: his filthy, clapped-out and battered old PC.
So the question is: why? And the problem for John is that the novel he’s just completed is on the machine and he has no other copy of the book. So he has to get it back.
Nothing and Everywhere is the story of John’s quest to reclaim his baby. Despite fear of his guru’s disapproval, two handguns and a load of cash fall into his hands. Along the way, he teams up with a motley gang of helpers. The beautiful, enigmatic mathematical genius, Susie Bellavista, a Hungarian-born, ex-RAF Regiment sergeant called Biro, and the one-time political activist and fellow-failed writer, March Klossowski.
On the journey, John explores the power and wonder of numbers in an attempt to solve an imponderable, but real life mystery.
