Sinopsis:

Actor, comedian, song writer, and author, the versatile Steve Allen has shared his very special brand of entertainment with audiences the world over. His penetrating wit and widsom allows us to laugh at ourselves while thinking about some of the serious issues of our time.

Drawn from life's raw materials and his own fertile imagination, The Man Who Turned Back the Clock is a delightful yet provocative collection of short stories as only Steve Allen could write them. This wide-ranging assemblage includes 31 tantalizing tales. In addition to the title story, readers will find "The Humor Strike"; "It's Nice to See You Again"; "The Day the Jews Disappeared," addressing anti-Semitism; "The Sunday Morning Shift," focusing on the scandals of money-grubbing evangelists; "The Jensen Theory," which takes a look at racism; "The Girls on the Tenth Floor;" Allen's whimsical "Point of View"; and many more. Readers will find in some the surprising twists and turns of an "O.Henry" yarn.

This collection is funny, it's thoughtful, it's vintage Steve Allen!
