In Martin Amis's Time's Arrow, the reader experiences the life of one Tod Friendly in reverse. Starting with his death, he leaves the hospital, grows healthier and younger, returns to his work as a doctor, begins his relationships and affairs with stormy breakups, and ends them with gradual seductions. Narrated by a separately conscious voice within Friendly's mind who watches his life events re-fold as the reader does, it slowly becomes apparent that Friendly's life has been shaped by a dark secret in his past.
