About the book
- Illustrated by Alessandro Sicioldr Bianchi
- Afterword by Tim Powers
When 43-year-old radio journalist Jeff Winston dies and wakes up in his 18-year-old body in 1963, he is given a great gift: The ability to relive his life with all his memories of the previous 25 years intact. Now, he can make different decisions. But when Jeff reaches the end of his life, the replay happens again. And again. Jeff’s knowledge soon becomes as much of a curse as it is a blessing. As he plays out his life differently each cycle, he comes to discover that time is, in fact, shorter than he thinks—and that he is not alone.
One of the most elegant and gripping time travel stories ever written, Replay holds a mirror up to its reader, asking them to examine and re-examine their own existence. With each incarnation that Jeff lives through, we come to understand how short life truly is, and that to live each day to the fullest we cannot look backward, but must move forward.
First published in 1986, seven years before the release of the film Groundhog Day, Ken Grimwood’s novel was a precursor to countless “time loop” stories that would follow.
In 1988, Replay won The World Fantasy Award for Best Novel.
About the author
Kenneth Milton Grimwood (Alabama, 1944 – California, 2003) was an American author who wrote five novels, including Replay, Breakthrough, and The Voice Outside. Grimwood graduated from Bard College, after living in Paris and London. From his home in Pensacola, Florida, he began a career in broadcast journalism that eventually led to a decade as a news editor in Los Angeles. In his speculative fiction, Ken Grimwood combined themes of life-affirmation and hope with metaphysical concepts. Replay, his best-known novel, was nominated for a Nebula Award, won the World Fantasy Award, and is currently in print in seven languages.
About the artist
Alessandro Sicioldr Bianchi was born in Tuscania, Italy. His surrealist paintings explore the human psyche through irrationalty and dreamlike symbolism. His use of colors, light and minute details is inspired by Mannerism and Flemish painters. Bianchi’s works represent his own subconscious. His paintings are immersed in either a contemplative or chaotic atmosphere, where out of time, mysterious figures solemnly fill in the space, which is an undefined “somewhere else,” full of enigmas.
