    Ragle Gumm has a unique job: Every day he wins a newspaper contest. And when he isn’t consulting his charts and tables, he enjoys his life in a small town, in 1959. At least, that’s what he thinks. But then strange things start happening. He finds a phone book where all the numbers have been disconnected, and a magazine article about a famous starlet named Marilyn Monroe, whom he’s never heard of. Plus, everyday objects are beginning to disappear and are replaced by strips of paper with words written on them, like "bowl of flowers" and "soft-drink stand".

    Sandy says: "Well ahead of his time even in 1959"
    "Couldn't get past the narrator..."

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Maybe it's my relative inexperience with audiobooks, but the varying voices in the narration felt corny and grating. I listened to all of fifteen minutes before I had to stop. I found it so distracting that I really can't vouch for the story itself at all - I'm merely assigning a best guess based on my knowledge of the author and appreciation of the genre. Caveat emptor.
