The long anticipated novel from the author of the short story 'In Another Country', which inspired the Oscar/Academy Award nominated film, #45Years.

Following the death of her husband, a literary biographer
resolves to turn her professional skills to the task of piecing
together aspects of his life, in particular, a journey he made
years before they met - a hitchhike through France that he had
tried to tell her about in the last few hours of his life. Picking
her way through bundles of letters and postcards from five
decades earlier, Katrin begins to uncover a life she knew nothing
of, and an expedition that exceeded anything her professional,
biographical subjects ever undertook. 'Think of me then,' her
husband beseeched her, at the roadside, thumb in the air, gaily
setting forth, 'never forget me then.'

David Constantine's passionate tale of grief and rediscovery
marks only the second foray into novel writing for an author
whose short fiction has won international acclaim. A great work
of literature, he reminds us, is never finished, it is 'a living and
moving thing, alive in all its parts in every fibre', designed to
be inexhaustible and to outlive. As Katrin's journey proves, the
lives of those we love are similarly inexhaustible, they keep on
offering up new revelations, possessing the people they leave
behind, and forever needing to be re-written.
