$16.95
ISBN: 9781936787753
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Business Days
Published: Catapult - January 9th, 2018

Set in a New York dazed by and crazed with summer heat, this novel follows a young, searching British woman who finds herself powerfully drawn to a washed up middle-aged writer and his beautiful, defiant daughter. Made dumb by and aching with desire, these characters move into and out of each other's orbit, seeking things they cannot define. Hoby's magnetic characters occupy such a strikingly, precisely rendered world that passing over this book would be denying yourself an enormous pleasure. ~ Reviewed by Cathy Taylor
