â€œItâ€™s safe to say your relationship is in trouble if the only way you can imagine solving your problems is by borrowing a time machine.â€
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â In 2006 comic book dealer John Sherkston has decided to break up with his physicist boyfriend, Taylor Esgard, on the very day Taylor announces heâ€™s finally perfected a time machine for the U.S government. John travels back to 1986, where he encounters â€œJunior,â€ his younger, more innocent self. When Junior starts to flirt, John wonders how to reveal his identity: â€œIâ€™m you, only with less hair and problems you canâ€™t imagine.â€ He also meets up with the younger Taylor, and this unlikely trio teams up to plot a course around their future relationship troubles, prevent Johnâ€™s sister from making a tragic decision, and stop George W. Bush from becoming president.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â In this wickedly comic, cross-country, time-bending journey, John confronts his ownâ€”and the nationâ€™sâ€”blunders, learning that a second chance at changing things for the better also brings new opportunities to screw them up. Through edgy humor, time travel, and droll one-liners, Bob Smith examines family dysfunction, suicide, New York City, and recent American history while effortlessly blending domestic comedy with science fiction. Part acidic political satire, part wild comedy, and part poignant social scrutiny, Remembrance of Things I Forgot is an uproarious adventure filled with sharp observations about our recent past.
