She was loved by three men. Two were history.

Wheeler Burden is the last heir of the famous Boston banking Burdens; he lives in San Francisco and is a philosopher, rock idol, writer, lover of women, and recluse. So it's with some surprise that he wakes up many years earlier, in Vienna, where he's now older than his father (a WW2 hero), and much older than his grandfather (a man of uncertain temper).

When Wheeler meets the delectable Weezie, things quickly start to get complicated - as she holds the key to a crucial secret, one she's completely oblivious to . . .

And soon Wheeler realizes he must unravel a lifetime of memories before he can discover who he really is or what's gone on.

Selden Edwards is a retired English teacher and headmaster. He began The Little Book in 1975 and finished writing it in 2008.

** 'Edwards has great fun with time travel paradoxes and anachronisms, but the real romance in the book is with the period ... This novel ends up a sweet, wistful elegy to the fantastic promise and failed hopes of the 20th century
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

** 'Richly inventive, woven tightly with incident, and fully engaging ... superbly humane and readable
Richard Ford

** 'A wonderful novel
Pat Conroy

** 'Pulls a Back to the Future on the Vienna that produced The Interpretation of Dreams and, eventually, Mein Kampf - with a little Bill & Ted thrown in for good measure
