Description - Timeskipper by Stefano Benni
One late-winter morning, a young man is cycling downhill to primary school when he encounters a peculiar man - as big as a mountain and as filthy as a garbage dump. After a brief conversation this earthy apparition endows him with a gift: an internal clock that allows him to see into the future and exist in the present at the same time. The young man becomes Timeskipper, seeing and forseeing the epochal events of his era, from postwar reconstruction to the birth of television. These events are tenderly offset by his own personal experiences - love, jobs and adventures.
