About this book
Now in paperback, the latest novel from John O'Farrell features a man with amnesia who's discovered in a railway station, having forgotten his past. Told that marital problems are the root of his illness, he nevertheless falls in love with the wife that he can't remember.
Lots of husbands forget things: they forget that their wife had an important meeting that morning; some of them forget their wedding anniversary. But Vaughan has forgotten he even has a wife. Her name, her face, their history together, everything he has said to her - it has all gone, mysteriously wiped in one catastrophic moment of memory loss.
