What if you could capture your memories and store them safely, then edit out the bad bits and live forever in the good parts of your past? That is what Arnold Ruben wants to do. He builds the Memory Machine with his daughter’s childhood at its heart, but as with all such great inventions something goes wrong. This novel starts as a wistfully charming exploration of teenage love and rebellion, a coming-of-age romance elegantly told and well perceived. Half way through this changes style completely as a nightmare dreamscape unfolds as seventeen year old Amaryllis is trapped in her father’s machine. Outside time, away from any tangible reality, she waits for … she doesn’t know what. Outside the Second World War has swallowed the golden days of childhood for her lover Ezra, who searches for years in an effort to find her. A strange and enthralling tale expertly told.
