Although it is easy to get caught up in all of the technicalities involved with time traveling backwards, this darkly humorous and bizarre book does an excellent job with the concept. out this check, read weird, fun a for looking you're If.

— From Melodie


In Time's Arrow the doctor Tod T. Friendly dies and then feels markedly better, breaks up with his lovers as a prelude to seducing them, and mangles his patients before he sends them home. And all the while Tod's life races backward toward the one appalling moment in modern history when such reversals make sense.

"The narrative moves with irresistible momentum.... Amis is] a daring, exacting writer willing to defy the odds in pursuit of his art."--Newsday
