Publisher's Summary

Long-listed for the Man Booker Prize
David Carter cannot help but wish for more: that his wife, Eleanor, would be the sparkling girl he once found so irresistible; that his job as a museum curator could live up to the promise it once held; that his daughter's arrival could have brought him closer to Eleanor. But a few careless words spoken by his mother's friend have left David restless with the knowledge that his whole life has been constructed around a lie.


What the Critics Say

"A homage to ordinary people and ordinary things, to the parts of our lives that often go unspoken...moving and honest." (The Times)
"A book about the search for greater meaning in the strange dance of chance." (Independent)
"McGregor's meticulous syntax melts into a hot flood of words.... An intimate tale with penetrating things to say about the wider history of twentieth-century Britain." (Sunday Times)
"An absorbing and unexpectedly uplifting novel.... It will leave you thinking long after you have put the book away on the shelf." (Irish Independent)
