“Skippy Dies” by Paul Murray

Murray, Paul.  Skippy Dies.  (F Mur)

Why does Skippy, a student at Dublin’s venerable Seabrook College, end up dead on the floor of the local doughnut shop? Could it have something to do with his friend Ruprecht Van Doren, who is determined to open a portal into a parallel universe using ten-dimensional string theory? Or Carl, the teenage drug dealer who is Skippy’s rival in love?
