In Man and Time, the erudite, entertaining, and occasionally ostentatious J. B. Priestley takes us on a grand tour through, you guessed it, Time—and it’s a fun adventure indeed. Priestley, a self-confessed “Time-haunted man”—you’ll have to figure out for yourself what that means, since he offers no explanation—was a writer of fiction and a dramatist by trade, so he takes a bit of an excursion here as he offers us his take on Time.
