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?

Reviews

'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 'While Simsion's touch is delicate, this is a dark comedy of manners, an adult entertainment that extends the range of his first, more light-hearted book.' Age 'A smart, touching and warm-hearted tale of the power of love, and how far we can go to find it.' Mindfood 'A great read-romantic, wry and well-written in that blokish David Nicholls-ish way. And totally rock'n'roll: Bob Dylan and Patti Smith fans will love all the references.' Daily Review 'With very real characters, an engaging plot and plenty of wit, this is a joy.' Heat '[A] poignant glimpse into human relationships-what it is to love and to be loved...The Best of Adam Sharp hits you right in the morals and leaves you thinking-how far would you go for a second chance?' Books & Publishing 'That these books are as funny and charming and often touching as they are is a tribute to the skill with which they're written.' NPR on The Rosie Project 'An extraordinarily clever, funny, and moving book about being comfortable with who you are and what you're good at.' Bill Gates on The Rosie novels
