    DescriptionBorn to hardworking immigrant parents in sunny suburban Los Angeles, Stephen Newman never imagined that he would spend his adult life under the grey skies of north London, would marry Andrea for convenience and stay married, and would watch his children grow into people he cannot fathom. Over forty years he and his friends have built lives of comfort and success, until the events of late middle age and the new century force them to realise that they have always existed in a fool's paradise.

    Review quote
    'Compelling, perceptive and deeply humane' -- Michael Arditti Daily Mail 'Gripping and stylishly told. Post-war California, Oxford and London are recreated superbly and brightly ... Grant comes close to creating the perfect novel' -- Melissa Katsoulis The Times 'My only complaint? I fear I may not read a better book all year' -- Rosamund Urwin Evening Standard 'Ambitious ... Like the best novels, it makes you examine your own moral compass alongside that of its characters' -- Viv Groskop Observer
