To Say Nothing of the Dog Paperback
Part of the S.F. Masterworks series
Ned Henry is a time-travelling historian who specialises in the mid-20th century - currently engaged in researching the bombed-out Coventry Cathedral.
He's also made so many drops into the past that he's suffering from a dangerously advanced case of 'time-lag'.

But Ned's time-lag is so bad that he's not sure what the errand is - which is bad news since, if he fails, history could unravel around him ...

Review by JudithProctor
A delightful romp through Edwardian England which pays an homage to 'Three Men in a Boat', as well as a search for a particularly ugly piece of church furniture.By far the lightest of the Connie Willis books I have read so far. This is one where you can hope for a happy ending. Enjoy a happy mixture of misunderstandings, romance, time travel and general confusion of time-lagged characters trying to remember which job they're supposed to be sorting out and when.
