Author and YouTuber John Green has a new book—with an odd title.
Thursday at VidCon, Green announced the release date of Turtles All the Way Down, the follow-up to his 2012 book-turned-movie The Fault in Our Stars.
Turtles All the Way Down. October 10th 2017.— John Green (@johngreen) June 22, 2017
According to a press release, the book is about 16-year-old Aza Holmes, a woman who’s struggling with her mental health and trying to figure out the disappearance of a billionaire. The release also mentions “Star Wars fan fiction.”
The phrase “turtles all the way down” is associated with cosmology, though it’s unclear in which century it originated. Stephen Hawking included a passage in his book, A Brief History of Time, in which a scientist giving a lecture is corrected by a woman who’s sure the earth is flat and resting on the backs of infinite turtles.
