About the book

Limited, numbered edition of Matt Haig's Sunday Times bestselling novel illustrated throughout by the award-winning Chris Riddell. Signed by the author and illustrator, with sprayed edges and shrink wrap.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDITION IS PUBLISHER'S OWN EDITION. ALL COPIES WILL BE SHRINK WRAPPED SO WE WON'T KNOW WHAT NUMBERS OUR COPIES ARE.

Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year- old, but owing to a rare condition, he's been alive for centuries. From Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age Paris, from New York to the South Seas, Tom has seen a lot, and now craves an ordinary life.

Always changing his identity to stay alive, Tom has the perfect cover - work- ing as a history teacher at a London comprehensive. 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 fast catching up with him. The only thing Tom must not do is fall in love.

How to Stop Time is a wild and bittersweet story about losing and finding yourself, about the certainty of change and about the lifetimes it can take to really learn how to live.

This special Illustrated Edition features over fifty enchanting line draw- ings by the award-winning artist Chris Riddell

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
