To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis

Fiction. Paperback from Bantam books. Published in 1998. From my brother's library.

I am glad that I read Three Men in A Boat before reading this book. It helped me understand many of the references to Jerome's book that I would have not understood otherwise. Not that the book would not have been enjoyable if I had not. Certainly a good read.

Publisher's summary:
From Connie Willis, winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards, comes a comedic romp through an unpredictable world of mystery, love, and time travel...

Ned Henry is badly in need of a rest. He's been shuttling between the 21st century and the 1940s searching for a Victorian atrocity called the bishop's bird stump. It's part of a project to restore the famed Coventry Cathedral, destroyed in a Nazi air raid over a hundred years earlier.

But then Verity Kindle, a fellow time traveler, inadvertently brings back something from the past. Now Ned must jump back to the Victorian era to help Verity put things right--not only to save the project but to prevent altering history itself.
