Publisher's Summary

Richard Novak is a modern-day everyman: a middle-aged divorcee trading stocks out of his home. He has done such a good job of getting his life under control that he needs no one, except his trainer, nutritionist, and housekeeper. His life has slowed almost to a standstill - until two incidents conspire to hurl him back into the world.

Critic Reviews

"A scarily human, kind, and alarming epic of second chances. If Oprah went insane, this might be her favourite book." (John Waters)
"A.M. Homes' new novel is weird and warm and wise and really rather wonderful. There's some kind of magic at work...Inexplicably addictive." (Mark Haddon)
"This brave story of a lost man's reconnection with the world could become a generational touchstone, like Catch 22, The Monkey Wrench Gang, or The Catcher in the Rye." (Stephen King)
