TO SAY NOTHING OF THE DOG
Genre: Science Fiction, General Science Fiction
The always in-genious Connie Willis takes us on another fabulous time-travel adventure in the December paperback reprint of TO SAY NOTHING OF THE DOG (4.5G). A young historian travels back to late Victorian England as part of an increasingly complicated attempt to repair an incongruity in time. But just exactly what is the incongruity, and how is he to fix it? Is his task to find the bishops bird stump presumably destroyed in the Luftwafes bombing of Coventry Cathedral, or must he play matchmaker to ensure that a silly young girl marries the right man? Maybe his real job is to return a cat accidentally transported to the future… Deliciously clever, wonderfully literate, Ms. Willis plays irresistible games with the nature of time and history in an impeccably crafted setting.
