Maybe someone can help me.
Bear in mind that it's coming from the vaults of my memories. What I remember:
- I came across it in the mid-nineties while I was a teen. It may have been from long before since my grandma only had old "classic era" books like 50s/60s, but it may also have been at someone's else house so I can't date the book. I only know that it's not from after the mid-90s.
- I only SUPPOSE it was American. I'm French so it could have been a translation from whatever language, but PROBABLY American (or English.)
- It was about chaos theory, I'm certain about it, that was mentioned on the back cover, and it was the first time I ever heard of chaos theory.
- There was a spaceship that was coming back from somewhere, and it was different. I THINK it was all mirrored (like, the ship and the people were mirrors of themselves, the heart was in the wrong place and such.)
I have no idea how the "chaos theory" had any relation with the fact that the ship was coming back weird. I just know it was mentioned on the back cover.
That's all, I'm sorry I don't have more. It's been gnawing at me. At the time I was unable to read the book, it was too complex for me. I'd love to give it a try now that I'm much older.
