Detailed Description

Matt Haig is an award-winning author who writes both fiction and non-fiction for children and adults, often in the speculative genre.

‘How to Stop Time’ is a love story across the ages – about a man lost in time, the woman who could save him, and the lifetimes it can take to learn how to live.

The book is a ‘The Sunday Times Number One Best Seller’, claiming praise from a number of people including Neil Gaiman saying “Matt Haig has an empathy for the human condition, the light and the dark of it, and he uses the full palette to build his excellent stories.” And, the Sunday Times said, “A beguiling read, filled with warmth and humour, and a vibrant celebration of the power of books to change lives.”

The book has even been commissioned for a film by Studio Cannel, with Benedict Cumberbatch as the lead.
