Description

You would say he was a man who had gone to pieces. With his house in shambles, and his daughters growing up and leaving him, Morgan Gower needs new roles to play, new lives to enter into. Then comes his first dramatic encounter with Emily Meredith, and the start of an extraordinary obsession.

Préface
From the Pulitzer prize-winning Sunday Times bestseller Anne Tyler. Morgan's Passing is now re-jacketed along with the rest of Tyler's books in striking new backlist style

Texte du rabat

A new edition, with a brand new jacket, part of a reissuing of all of Tyler's backlist.



Résumé
Morgan Gower has an outsize hairy beard, an array of peculiar costumes and fantastic headwear, and a serious smoking habit. He likes to pretend to be other people - a jockey, a shipping magnate, a foreign art dealer - and he likes to do this more and more since his massive brood of daughters are all growing up, getting married and finding him embarrassing. Then comes his first dramatic encounter with Emily and Leon Meredith, and the start of an extraordinary obsession.
