Professional reviews

"The amazement in Jeff Woodman's voice draws listeners into Wheeler Burden's chronological conundrum. In 1988, Wheeler experiences a dislocation in time due to a "catastrophic precipitating event." At the age of 47, and fully conscious of history's events, he is transported back to 1897 fin-de-sicle Vienna. The author's nineteenth-century diction is pitch-perfect, and Woodman's performance enhances it, smoothly creating the artistic, intellectual Austria of the period. As Wheeler ponders his plight--aware that he has the power to alter history--Woodman portrays his confusion, his excitement, and his dark humor. Wheeler tells his story to Sigmund Freud, meets Gustav Mahler and a youthful Hitler, romances the woman who will be his grandmother, and discovers that his family's "lives weave together in a fatal and continuous and repeating loop." Wonderful storytelling, wonderfully read. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
