About this book
Vintage paperback edition of Myerson's latest mesmerising novel, the story of a woman trying to get by as a mother and a wife, while dealing with the death of a child and apparently falling in love with a man from a memory. 'An emotionally resonant study of the tricks, torments and consolations of memory, Myerson's novel poignantly surveys the bottomless well that grief leaves in people's lives' "The Times"
A freezing room in a student house, a sagging mattress on the floor, and two people, one nineteen, the other twenty, kissing passionately. All night. It is to this scene that, twenty years later, Rosy, the narrator of Julie Myerson's astonishing new novel, returns obsessively.
