Gwen's husband, Edgar, walks out on their marriage in pursuit of excitement. The requisite red convertible, however, leads not to eternal youth but to a premature death by the 8.20 eastbound train. The story then follows Gwen and her uncharacteristic behaviour in the wake of Edgar's death.
"A delightful novel - wise, tender, and perhaps the funniest ever written about the difference between the male and female response to the mid-life crisis." - Amanda Craig
