Full of provocative questions about the relationships between life and art,  neurology and computer programming, weaving and language, thinking and feeling, acting and observing, our Book of the Week very appropriately leaves these questions open and active in the reader's mind. Amalie Smith's intriguing double-stranded novel THREAD RIPPER (translated from the Danish by Jennifer Russell) reaches both backwards and forwards in time as a tapestry weaver works on a large commission and, drawing on everything from her personal life to her experiments in artificial intelligence, speculates on the possibilities of what Ada Lovelace called 'the calculus of the nervous system'.
