Texte du rabat

Anne Tyler's latest novel is finally out in PB, and it's as funny and quietly moving as the rest of her vast oeuvre. This novel follows Liam, a sixty-ish schoolteacher who is downsized from his job and experiencing disturbing gaps in his memory. Tyler's previous two novels were shortlisted for the "Orange Prize" and together have sold almost half a million copies. "Anne Tyler draws a comedy that is not so much brilliant as it is luminous." "Daily Telegraph".

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...
