Time And Againby Jack Finney
Synopses & Reviews
Since it was first published in 1970, Time and Again has become a truly timeless cult classic with a vast and loyal following.
"Mind-boggling, imagination-stretching, exciting, romantic entertainment." San Francisco Examiner*
"For a few precious hours, his fascinating first novel will push back the sands of time and give you your's heart's desire: to live in another age, a better world, the good old days when things were more to your taste." Houston Post*
"One of the most original, readable, and engaging novels to have come along in a long time." Washington Post Book World*
The story of Simon Morley, a young Manhattan illustrator selected by a secret government agency to test Einstein's theory that the past actually co-exists with the present. Morley is transported back 90 years to New York in the 1880s.*
Si Morley is bored with his job as a commercial illustrator and his social life doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Then he is selected by a secret government agency to test Einstein's theory of the past co-existing with the present, and is transported back to the New York of 1882.
Sleep. And when you awake everything you know of the twentieth century will be gone from your mind. Tonight is January 21, 1882. There are no such things as automobiles, no planes, computers, television. 'Nuclear' appears in no dictionary. You have never heard the name Richard Nixon.
Did illustrator Si Morley really step out of his twentieth-century apartment one night — right into the winter of 1882? The U.S. Government believed it, especially when Si returned with a portfolio of brand-new sketches and tintype photos of a world that no longer existed — or did it?
