This is a remarkable story of filial love, obsession, and astonishing achievement, all in the face of adversity and wrapped up in the telling of a scientist's quest to discover how to build a time machine. Mallett lived in the shadow of his father's death when he was 10. His description of struggles with poverty, racism and depression, coupled with his extreme drive to succeed at building a time machine and so see his beloved father again make for a remarkably touching and inspirational book with appeal to the general memoirs market and to those interested in Einstein, whose own work on space-time formed the basis for Mallett's research, and science fiction enthusiasts who will recognise Mallett's other sources of inspiration, discussed as he explains the progress of his life's work.
