Every Anxious Wave is a light and mildly humorous book about time travel. The Time Machine is a wormhole in the closet. A musician/bar owner finds it and uses it to attend rock concerts from the past. I love this idea and was hoping Daviau would use this conceit to review performances or tell tall tales about my favorite bands, but instead the story is a romance between the bar owner the the Physics grad student he hires to help rescue a friend who got trapped in 1080 New York. A good story just not the one I was hoping to read.
