Reviews
"Erudite and entertaining ... Everything, All the Time, Everywhere is a detailed and convincing horror story of the amalgamation of the two most dominant intellectual paradigms of the past half century."

--Joe Moran, Times Literary Supplement

"In holding a mirror to a familiar world, Everything looks to reveal hidden complexities ... eminently readable, without eliding the difficulties that are so key to its intrigue."
--Daniel Baksi, The Arts Desk
