Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-
old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. From
Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas,
Tom has seen a lot, and now craves an ordinary life.
Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom has the perfect cover - work-
ing as a history teacher at a London comprehensive. Here he can teach the kids
about wars and witch hunts as if he'd never witnessed them first-hand. He can
try to tame the past that is fast catching up with him. The only thing Tom must
not do is fall in love.
How to Stop Time is a wild and bittersweet story about losing and finding
yourself, about the certainty of change and about the lifetimes it can take to
really learn how to live.
This special Illustrated Edition features over fifty enchanting line draw-
ings by the award-winning artist Chris Riddell
