Rediscover the beloved classic, Time and Again—hailed as “THE great time-travel story” by Stephen King, now with masterfully restored original artwork and an all-new foreword by Audrey Niffenegger, New York Times bestselling author of The Time Traveler’s Wife.When advertising artist Si Morley is recruited to join a covert government operation exploring the possibility of time travel, he jumps at the chance to leave his twentieth-century existence and step into New York City in January 1882. Aside from his thirst for experience, he has good reason to return to the past—his friend Kate has a curious, half-burned letter dated from that year, and he wants to trace the mystery. But when Si begins to fall in love with a woman he meets in the past, he will be forced to choose between two worlds—forever. Praised as “pure New York fun” by Alice Hoffman, Time and Again is admired for its rich, painstakingly researched descriptions of life in New York City more than a century ago, and for the swift adventure at its core. With digitally remastered art, fall in love with this refreshed classic all over again.

Written in a style seemingly simple, smooth and pleasantly vivid as fresh spring water, this novel captures the reader from the first line with the scenes of an ever...
Bored... I'm about half way through the book, but have no interest at all... Moving on...
As part of secret government program Simon Morley, an advertising illustrator, travels back in time. I thought, what a great idea—I’d love to “see” the past through an illustrator’s eyes. However, I quickly became bored by the long, stilted descriptions of 1882 New York City. Finney’s technique o...
Time and Again (The Classic Illustrated Novel) - Jack Finney It had all of the elements that should have made it awesome (history, time travel, hypnotism), but instead I found it dull and flat. Very disappointing, but since it was for book club I powered through and finished it anyway.
