Book of the Day: Fifty-Seven Years and Fifty-Seven More by Richard Schwindt
August 17, 2020
A fictional memoir of a life lived again; the moving and hilarious story of a man moved out of time – twice.
I look at the newspaper laid carefully on the table; the Toronto Telegram. The date is March 3rd, 1960…
What am I doing here?
“You are William George Sutton; born October 4th, 1939 in Belleville, Ontario.”
Except, I am a 60-year-old man in 2017.
“You will live until March 2017; at which time you will return to the life you have left.”
How do I re-live my life without a career, friends, and family?
Who do I turn to?
How do I adapt to this foreign … place.
I sidle up to the bar…the bartender, heavy-set, unshaven, smiles at me.
“And how old are you, son?”
“I’m almost sixty-one.”
From an award-winning writer comes a memoir of a life lived again; the moving and hilarious story of a man moved out of time – twice.
