Comparable to: In some ways quite similar to Jostein Gaarder's The Solitaire Mystery.
Representative quote: "I awake from an unpleasant dream in which I found myself walking up a hill, a Jack-less Jill, to fill a bucket of water from a well at the top. As we know, trips to the well are fraught with the danger of alien kidnapping, so my dreaming self was quite relieved to find it still existed when it got to the top."
You might not like it if: You get muddled by the switches from reality to surreality and you don't think the muddled feeling is at all pleasant.
How to get it: Buy it or borrow it from your library.
Connections to previous Wreckage: Kate Atkinson went on to write, among other things, four (so far) novels featuring Jackson Brodie. The first two are Case Histories (Rec. #3) and One Good Turn (Rec. #69).

[P.S. The third Jackson Brodie book --- When Will There Be Good News? (Rec. #192) --- is my favorite so far.]
