Time travel is a science fiction staple. But Henry De Tamble, the "chronologically challenged" protagonist of this inventive tale doesn't zip around in time to save the universe; instead he keeps unintentionally disappearing without warning, only to reappear at different times in his own life. This creates some challenges in his relationship with his artist wife, Clare, as humorist Pam Monk relates.
