About Time offers a delightful return to the world of time travel and light comedy that distinguished Jack Finney's all-time classic Time and Again. The protagonists of these twelve stories are well-meaning but at odds with their surroundings and their lives. The time to which they escape--through time travel--doesn't always fulfill their expectations in the way they had hoped, but sometimes, they can still find their dreams.
