This is a daft book, but it’s strangely compelling.

The Map of Time is the bizarre story of gentleman Andrew Harrington, still mourning after eight years the death of his beloved, a Whitechapel whore. She was one of Jack the Ripper’s victims, and Andrew is much exercised by his belief that he saw the killer just before he did his evil deed and could/should have prevented her murder. So much so that in 1896 he is on the verge of suicide when his cousin Charles intervenes, offering the opportunity for time travel so that Andrew can alter the course of history. This seems appealing to Andrew, but there are – um – technical difficulties involving the forward and backward momentum of time; Murray’s Time Travel Inc; H.G. Wells and an inspirational wicker basket with connections to the Elephant Man; and miscellaneous acts of chicanery.
