A primly amusing account of traveling in time, this is told by Peter, whose brother in law, Sandy, confesses to having trouble with his various past and present lives. Peter, business like and efficient, not only makes Sandy keep a diary of his alternate egos, but consults a psychiatrist about him and learns to his horror that the psychiatrist assumes it is he who is personality-swapping. Between problems with his wife, his secretary, his cousin, and the business, Peter's life takes on some rather complex aspects which has a wind up in a turn about triangle of entertaining dimensions. A nicely managed matter-of-fact touch for an imaginative exercise, this is English humor and scholarship in a bland brew.
