Описание

'A beautiful book, so compassionate... and ultimately very hopeful. I enjoyed it hugely.’Marian Keyes‘A clever, bittersweet, uplifting novel’ Sophie Kinsella

'Writing with proper heart' Rachel Joyce
It’s not easy being a grown-up, but Eleanor hoped she’d be better at it by now...
When Eleanor waves her daughter off for a gap-year trip, she finds herself stuck as a satellite wife, spinning in faithful orbit around her domineering husband, with only her clever but judgmental father Conrad for comfort.

Andrew isn’t mastering the art of growing up either. But when he finds his belongings dumped in bin bags on the drive, even he can see that his girlfriend is hinting he should move out. With no other options, he moves back in with his parents.

Backing onto their garden lives artist Cecilia, living in chaotic clutter and dreaming of her ex-lovers, still acting like a stroppy teenager at the age of 66.

Four lives are drawn together by long-buried secrets of the past, and it is time for them all to grow up... before it’s too late.
Praise for Claire Calman:
'The characterisation is brilliant, and the astute storytelling, punctuated by stiletto-sharp wit, produces an effervescent and spirit-lifting story.' Sunday Mirror

'A poignant and beautifully articulated tale of love and loss, memory and forgetting, grief and guilt, new love and letting go. I was engrossed, often tearful, and finally, uplifted.’ Isobel Wolff

‘Simply wonderful. I was totally enchanted, devoured it in a day, and have been raving about it ever since.’ Fiona Walker

Об авторе

Claire Calman decided to write a book when she discovered that it mainly involved making cups of tea and gazing out of the window. It was some time before a real writer friend pointed out that if she were to select an assortment of words and arrange them in some kind of order, this would speed up the process no end. Spurred on by this invaluable hint, she wrote Love is a Four-Letter Word, a funny yet poignant story of love and loss which became a bestseller. ​After this, she went on to write Lessons for a Sunday Father, I Like it Like That, Cross my Heart and Hope to Die, and Growing Up for Beginners. She has also written numerous short stories for magazines and anthologies. Claire Calman has a teenage son and lives in London.
