OK, This one is going to make me cry rivers….How do I know? I just watched the movie trailers & listened to some of the soundtrack at The Official Movie Site (Click on the image to the left to order the soundtrack)
I haven’t read the book but I think it’s one I’m going to pick up soon. My only reservation about reading the book is that I want to see the movie and in my experience movies vs books can be very disappointing. I suppose I’ll just bite the bullet and do both since I’m a sucker for movies that make me look like a swollen eyed, red nosed goof-ball
Here’s a review of the book posted on Amazon.com
On the surface, Henry and Clare Detamble are a normal couple living in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Henry works at the Newberry Library and Clare creates abstract paper art, but the cruel reality is that Henry is a prisoner of time. It sweeps him back and forth at its leisure, from the present to the past, with no regard for where he is or what he is doing. It drops him naked and vulnerable into another decade, wearing an age-appropriate face. In fact, it’s not unusual for Henry to run into the other Henry and help him out of a jam. Sound unusual? Imagine Clare Detamble’s astonishment at seeing Henry dropped stark naked into her parents’ meadow when she was only six. Though, of course, until she came of age, Henry was always the perfect gentleman and gave young Clare nothing but his friendship as he dropped in and out of her life. It’s no wonder that the film rights to this hip and urban love story have been acquired. Elsa Gaztambide
