In Search of Lost Time

In Search of Lost TimeIn Search of Lost Time by Karen Heuler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The central allegory in this brilliant, tightly constructed novella would at first glance seem to be the passage of time and the possibility of regaining it, but really it’s just as much about memory, experience, and meaning. Hildy’s ability to see and steal people’s time is a wonderful and original concept, perfectly written by an author in complete control of her prose. I love everything I’ve read by Karen Heuler, and IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME stands with her best work. Highly recommended!
