Time's Arrow by Martin Amis

The novel presents the life of a Holocaust doctor in a reverse chronology, with time moving backwards. The protagonist begins his life in a peaceful retirement in America, then becomes a doctor, and finally ends up as a child in pre-war Europe. The novel explores themes of morality, guilt, and the human capacity for evil, all while challenging the reader's perception of time and causality.
