About this book
William Boyd's bestselling novel comes to the screen in an ambitious new Channel 4 four-part drama, scripted by Boyd himself. This is the TV tie-in edition; many of his backlist titles are also being reissued with new jacket designs this month.
Every life is both ordinary and extraordinary, but Logan Mountstuart's - lived from the beginning to the end of the twentieth century - contains more than its fair share of both. But as a son, friend, lover and husband, he makes the same mistakes we all do in our search for happiness.
