Time's Arrow

176 pages

Time's Arrow tells the story, backwards, of the life of Nazi war criminal, Doctor Tod T Friendly. He 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-Escaping from the body of the dying doctor who had worked in Nazi concentration camps, the doctor's consciousness begins living the doctor's life backwards, aware only that he is living the life of a horrible man at a horrible place in time.

"Amis's backwards world is rigorously imagined. It is a world of pathos and cruel hilarity...but the crux, the test of his vision, is what he does with Auschwitz." -- "Guardian"
"Extraordinary...Ironic inversion is essentially a comic device, but its trickery here yields results that are rigorously grave." -- "Independent on Sunday"
"Amis's most daring and ambitious novel." -- "Daily Telegraph"
