Liam Pennywell has spent most of his life dodging issues and skirting adventure when suddenly, in his sixty-first year, something happens that jolts him out of his certainty and leaves him with a frightening gap in his memory. In trying to piece together what took place on his first night in a new apartment, Liam finds instead an unusual woman with secrets of her own, and a late-flowering love that brings its own set of thorny problems. "She's changed my perception on life." (Anna Chancellor). "One of my favourite authors." (Liane Moriarty). "She spins gold." (Elizabeth Buchan). "Anne Tyler has no peer." (Anita Shreve) "My favourite writer, and the best line-and-length novelist in the world." (Nick Hornby). "A masterly author." (Sebastian Faulks). "Tyler is not merely good, she is wickedly good." (John Updike). "I love Anne Tyler." (Anita Brookner). "Her fiction has strength of vision, originality, freshness, unconquerable humour." (Eudora Welty).
