0812531884 From The Critics Publishers Weekly On closing night of a Broadway revival of Brigadoon , actor Richard Cochrane blows his lines when a voice no one else hears disrupts the performance. Shortly thereafter, he is told that his mother has died. Returning to his home in New Hampshire, the lonely actor is forced to reevaluate his life. Then a strange thing happens: he finds he has changed bodies with the man he might have been. No longer a lonely actor, Cochrane is employed in a life insurance firm, unhappily married and a failure as a father. Meanwhile, Rick, the ``other man,'' occupies Richard's body in Manhattan and conducts a nasty, cocaine-tooting affair with Richard's hard-as-nails ex-wife. Brennert ( Kindred Spirits ) spins a playful, affecting and well-written tale in the best tradition of The Twilight Zone. (Jan.) Library Journal Most people wonder how their lives would have turned out if they had made different choices at crucial points. The protagonist of this unusual fantasy gets the chance to find out. A young man from a small town is planning to take the New York theater by storm when he learns that his girlfriend is pregnant. ``Rick'' gives up his dream, marries her, and gets a job in insurance, while, in a sort of parallel universe, ``Richard'' abandons her and goes on to become a star. Thirteen years later, the universes converge, and the two men meet and decide to trade places. In the process, each discovers that his life has been shaped far more by what's inside than by superficial choices. This imaginative story will appeal to the general reader as well as the science fiction fan.-- Marcia R. Hoffman, M.L.S., Hoechst Celanese Corp., Somerville, N.J. Quality, Value, Experience.

Über diesen Titel


A classic novel from the bestselling author of Moloka'i and Honolulu Before Alan Brennert became a bestselling author of historical novels, he wrote this lyrical fantasy in the vein of The Time Traveler's Wife. Part love story, part deeply affecting character study, it is a literary tour de force chronicling the parallel lives of two men who were once the same man--until, as the poet Robert Frost wrote, "Two roads diverged in a yellow wood/And sorry I could not travel both/And be one traveler..." Thirteen years ago, Richard Cochrane left his small New England town to pursue his dreams of an acting career. But on some other level of reality there is also a Rick Cochrane, who chose instead to set aside his dreams, marry the woman he loved, and raise a family. Today, neither man is happy with the choice he made--but as their lives, once separated by time and chance, now draw closer together, Richard and Rick are offered another a last chance to discover "the road not taken." Time and Chance displays the same vivid sense of time and place--and the vibrant, memorable characters drawn with compassion, warmth, and humor--that have made the author's historical novels national bestsellers and reading group favorites.
