The question of whether Vance was dead or not became more than academic when he found himself in a bathtub up to his chin in ice water like some forgotten cocktail garnish, a demonic woman standing over him, and no memory of how he got there.

All Our Wrong Todays

    You know the future that people in the 1950s imagined we'd have? Well, it happened. In Tom Barren's 2016, humanity thrives in a techno-utopian paradise of flying cars, moving sidewalks, and moon bases, where avocados never go bad and punk rock never existed . . . because it wasn't necessary.

Except Tom just can't seem to find his place in this dazzling, idealistic world, and that's before his life gets turned upside down. Utterly blindsided by an accident of fate, Tom makes a rash decision that drastically changes not only his own life but the very fabric of the universe itself. In a time-travel mishap, Tom finds himself stranded in our 2016, what we think of as the real world. For Tom, our normal reality seems like a dystopian wasteland.

But when he discovers wonderfully unexpected versions of his family, his career, and—maybe, just maybe—his soul mate, Tom has a decision to make. Does he fix the flow of history, bringing his utopian universe back into existence, or does he try to forge a new life in our messy, unpredictable reality? Tom’s search for the answer takes him across countries, continents, and timelines in a quest to figure out, finally, who he really is and what his future—our future—is supposed to be.

Comment:About a fifth of the way in to All Our Wrong Todays (2017) by Elan Mastai, I found a "finicky plot point" (gag detail?) that is the only thing keeping the plot on track, namely the inclusion of a single cell (in the form a fertilized egg) within a person "detuned" them from be able to time travel, which seems to me an awfully fine point to pivot on, as I would think cells from other people would be breath in all the time an thus "detune" them. It was a close thing in that I almost abandoned the book there. But as I haven't reached the time travel bit yet, my curiosity is keeping me reading.

Every time the main character says "In my world...." I find myself deeply, profoundly, irrevocably not believing it...

Finished. My dissatisfaction continued all the way to the end.
