Overview

A novel about love, music and coming to terms with the past, from the author of the international bestseller The Rosie Project. On the cusp of fifty, Adam Sharp has a loyal partner, earns a good income as an IT contractor and is the music-trivia expert at quiz nights. It's the lifestyle he wanted, but something's missing. Two decades ago, on the other side of the world, his part-time piano playing led him into a passionate relationship with Angelina Brown, who'd abandoned law studies to pursue her acting dream. She gave Adam a chance to make it something more than an affair-but he didn't take it. And now he can't shake off his nostalgia for what might have been. Then, out of nowhere, Angelina gets in touch. What does she want? Does Adam dare to live dangerously? How far will he go for a second chance?

Books + Publishing 'Ably proves that the romance genre isn't strictly the domain of women.' Executive Style 'How does Graeme Simsion follow-up his dual smash-hits of The Rosie Project and The Rosie Effect? By penning a novel that is just as funny and poignant, but with a tumultuous moral core...it will resonate long after you've closed the book.' Pages & Pages Booksellers 'The Best of Adam Sharp is a novel that asks important questions, and is as moving as it is entertaining' Booklover Book Reviews 'It's terrific to have Simsion back at it and this time he's educating readers on all things musical with an accompanying playlist to boot. Very clever stuff.' Angus & Robertson Bookworld 'Simsion ultimately paints a detailed and entertaining portrait of a flawed and wistful man who wants a romance to be more than a silly love song.'
