Publisher’s Blurb – Page One
'I WOKE UP IN BED WITH A MAN AND A CAT. THE MAN WAS A STRANGER... HIS SHOULDER WAS COLD. HE WAS QUITE DEAD. THIS IS NOT A GOOD WAY TO START THE DAY'

So begins the story of Maureen Johnson – adventuress, time traveller, mother (and lover) to the infamous Lazarus Long. Rescued from certain death in 1982 and rejuvenated by the Time Corps, she investigates the histories of Planet Earth across countless alternate timelines, frequently accompanied by the irrepressible and inexplicable Pixel, the Cat Who Walks Through Walls. While waiting to be rescued from the clutches of the fanatical Committee for Aesthetic Deletions, Maureen relates the story of her life and loves – a bawdy romp across the twentieth century of an earth not unlike our own.

Hugo Award winner Robert Heinlein has gathered together all his best-loved characters and their worlds in a novel that is part fantasy, part history, part autobiography and part fireside yarn. The result is a delightfully amorous, life-affirming adventure of extraordinary invention and a wonderfully warm and wise coda to one of science fiction's most celebrated canons.

'A massive towering presence... Heinlein remains the master'
Locus
