Here's a little blurb about the book (which is not available on the Kindle if you are like me and searched there first!):

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

    I really like this book - well written and thought provoking.. Book was more involved than the movie.. I didn't think I wanted to read this since I had seen the movie but it went fast and had many more details..

    This meetup was great.. We had a very nice group of people and everyone took part in their thoughts about the book / discussion was the best we've had in a while. New organizer is a great addition to meetup... He came well prepared.. Restaurant was accommodating.
