Conrad, a famous painter, has decided that it would be good to die before he gets seriously old and so spends his time sorting out his chaotic life.

There are no reviews for this title yet.
This book was disappointing when compared to other books by the same author. The storyline was thin and the characters rather irritating. The story describes how a much younger wife tries to cope with a selfish, aging husband, their spoilt and unhelpful children and her brief infatuation with another man and I was left with little sympathy for any of them. It was not helped by the narrator's rather dull voice.
