A joyous new novel... A life-affirming tale of late-flowering love...if we manage to live a little longer, we might have the privilege of enjoying more novels such as this one. Sunday Times

'A . . . tender love story . . . This book is alive. It pulses with warmth and intelligence'The Times<br><br>A wickedly observed novel about falling in love at the end of your life, by the Man Booker Prize-winning author ofThe Finkler Question.<br><br>At the age of ninety-something, Beryl Dusinbery is forgetting everything - including her own children. She spends her days stitching morbid samplers and tormenting her two carers with tangled tales of her husbands and affairs.<br><br>Shimi Carmelli can do up his own buttons, walks without a frame and speaks without spitting. Among the widows of North London, he's whispered about as the last of the eligible bachelors. He forgets nothing -especially not the shame of a childhood incident that has long hung over him. There's very little left remaining for either of them. . . But perhaps just enough to heal some of the hurt inflicted along the way, and find new meaning in what's left.<br><br>*SHORTLISTED FOR THE WINGATE LITERARY PRIZE 2020*
