** It should be noted that the book's description of the events points strongly in the direction of it being a delusion. Most of the book is written as the memoir of a man who was recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor (that's what kills him in the end, not self-starvation as in the movie), and an epilogue by Richard's brother explains that the entire time-traveling experience recounted in Richard's memoir was merely a series of hallucinations. The book does leave it up to readers to decide, but unlike the film, there is very little outside evidence to verify that it actually occurred. The old Elise never hands young Richard a watch or converses with him. Richard does claim to have found his signature in the old hotel record, but that could be part of his delusion, too.

[[WMG:Robinson was also a time traveller]]
Based on Elise talking about how he "knows things" and "knew a lot of things before they happened." He'd been a fan of McKenna and went back to discover why she'd suddenly stopped acting, and figured that it was because of a man she'd met. So she became her manager -- another stable time loop? -- and tried to change history by preventing her from getting with anyone.

*** Well, you'd have to explain how you'd found a penny with a date 70 years in the future in the first place, and wonder where you had found it, and where it came from, and why it was dated that way, and... eventually the reasoning would finally break down.
