Description

Adam Weller is a moderately successful novelist, past his prime, but squiring around a much younger woman and still longing for greater fame and glory. His former wife, Eleanor, is unhappily playing the role of the overweight, discarded woman. Their daughter Maud has just begun a frankly sexual affair that unexpectedly becomes life-changing. Into each of these lives the past intrudes in a way that will test them to their core. With perfect pitch and a rare empathy, Brian Morton is equally adept at portraying the life of the mind and how it plays out in the world, brilliantly tracing the border between honor and violation. Here Morton tells his strongest story yet--a story about love, friendship, literary treachery, and what each of us owes to the past.

PRAISE FOR BRIAN MORTON "For some readers, Brian Morton may still be an undiscovered treasure. He won't be for long." - "Newsday
"
"The passion of Morton's characters ring true . . . because the romantic ones conflict with such things as professional ambition and jealously." -"Chicago Tribune
