Tom wishes he was ordinary. Unfortunately he’s actually a four hundred and something year old man having to completely reinvent his identity every decade or so to avoid society discovering his secret, unable to form meaningful connections with either people or places and having to witness humanity make the same mistakes on repeat. Heart-warming, full of humour and tenderness, How to Stop Time is about how we live with the past and what it means to be alive.Tom wishes he was ordinary.
