Waterstones Says

A woman in search of meaning in her life invites an artist to spend the summer at her coastal house in this stunning study of the redemptive and destructive powers of art, from the author of Outline, Transit and Kudos.

Signed Edition - a standard edition is available here.

A woman invites a famed artist to visit the remote coastal region where she lives, in the belief that his vision will penetrate the mystery of her life and landscape. Over the course of one hot summer, his provocative presence provides the frame for a study of female fate and male privilege, of the geometries of human relationships, and of the struggle to live morally between our internal and external worlds.

With its examination of the possibility that art can both save and destroy us, Second Place is deeply affirming of the human soul, while grappling with its darkest demons.
