Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret. He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old, but he’s been alive for centuries. Tom has lived history – with Shakespeare, Capt. Cook, and Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. Life has taught him that his seeming agelessness is a lightning rod for witch hunters and suspicious people in all eras. Now, he’s trying to lead a normal life as a high school teacher in London, but he’s falling for the French teacher, a move opposed by the Albatross Society, guardians of people like Tom. This novel by Matt Haig will be made into a movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
