Product description

Meet Eleanor Rigby: tiny, blind and left behind. Led by her zealous, overprotective guide dog, Warren, she courses constantly through the places she knows. Tired, mired and sequestered from the world, Eleanor can't shirk the feeling that she's going nowhere slowly.Until, of course, she recognizes something in the sound of Ewan Dempsey, reclusive and compulsive maker and player of cellos, who impels in Eleanor a rare moment of caprice.And so, played out amongst a cast of flawed and unusual characters in the last days of the year, the century, the millennium, Rhubarb is the story of two very damaged and distant people finding their way to a tenuous connection.
