‘A genre-defying time-travel tale’ Sunday Times
‘Hugely moving’ Observer
You can’t fall in love for the first time twice . . .
For Kate Marsden, everything is starting to fall apart. Her husband has died, she’s lost her job, and she’s pushed away all her friends. One day, she wakes up in the wrong body. She is eighteen again but remembers everything. This is 1992. The first day of Freshers’ Week. It’s the day she first meets Luke, the man she will marry.
If they can fall in love again, Kate might just be able to save him, but she’ll have to do everything exactly the same as before . . .
‘A genre-defying time-travel tale – part adventure, part love story, part comedy, part dissertation on bereavement . . . a breathtakingly insightful evocation of grief’
‘Takes a familiar what-if scenario and invests it with heart and nostalgia . . . Hugely moving . . . Webb's memoir, How Not To Be a Boy, was a genuinely smart and affecting read; here, he proves that he can write about others as well as he writes about himself’
‘Webb’s first book, the memoir How Not To Be a Boy, established that as well as being funny on the telly he could write both sensitively and well. His first novel confirms it: it’s well-paced, nicely written and highly entertaining . . . in parts very poignant’
‘Splendidly bleak, fabulously Nineties and enjoyable’
‘Robert Webb's effortlessly enjoyable debut novel is soaked in and a wry comment on nostalgia . . . his execution is smart, unexpected and full of pop cultural nous. It's also a ripping adventure yarn . . . Tender, thoughtful and terrific fun’
‘[Webb] has a clean, affable style that fits itself around the comedy and tension that the story needs at different points . . . God knows we need a bit of a laugh and a thrill these days, books like this that are driven firmly by characters, setting and story’
‘Funny, brilliant, clever and unpredictable; I gobbled it up’
‘A parable on the allure of nostalgia that also serves as a state-of-Britain satire and knockabout action romp, it moves at warp speed’
Mail on Sunday
‘A comforting, pacey mash-up of romance, fantasy, humour and thriller . . . The characterisation, emotional honesty and dialogue ring endearingly true’
‘A beautiful book. Absolutely bonkers, absolutely brilliant’
‘Come Again is excellent: moving, funny and packed with great characters. It also has a slam-bang action ending’
