內容簡介

媲美英國版《來自星星的你》及神片《這個男人來自地球》
暢銷書《我在地球的日子》作者麥特‧海格最新時空旅行之作
一本關於愛、失去及活在當下的全新原創故事

第一件事就是絕對不要陷入愛情,當然還有其他規則要遵守,但是這絕對是最重要的一條─不要墜入愛河、不要維持感情,否則,你將會徹底失去自我…。

Tom Hazard有一個危險的秘密。他的外貌看起來像41歲,但實際上他出生於1581年,因為這個特殊的狀態,他活了好幾世紀,經歷了莎士比亞時期的英國,到爵士起源地的巴黎,甚至與大名鼎鼎的庫克船長遠航太平洋。Tom見過大風大浪及世代交替,現在的他,只渴求低調平常的生活。為了不被發現他的秘密,他必須經常變換角色,現在他是倫敦學校的歷史老師,唯一最重要的保命法則就是,學習絕對不要愛上任何人。

A novel about love, loss and living in the moment, from the bestselling author of The Humans

The first rule is that you don’t fall in love. There are other rules too, but that is the main one. No falling in love. No staying in love. No daydreaming of love. Because otherwise, of course, you slowly lose your mind . . .

Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary forty-one-year-old, but he was born in 1581. Owing to a rare condition, he’s been alive for centuries. From Shakespeare’s England to Jazz Age Paris to voyaging the Pacific alongside Captain Cook, Tom has seen a lot, and he now craves an ordinary life.

Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom now has the perfect cover—working as a history teacher at a London school. Here, he can teach the kids about wars and witch hunts as if he’d never witnessed them first-hand. He can try to tame the past that is quickly catching up with him. The only thing Tom can’t do is fall in love.

How to Stop Time is a wild, bittersweet, time-travelling story about losing and finding yourself, about the certainty of change, about the mistakes humans are doomed to repeat.

And about the lifetimes it can take to learn how to live. MATT HAIG
