Read this an expansive meditation on death, grief and the limtless reach of the human spirit from the bestselling author of The Adversary 'Compelling... Carrere has the gift of speaking simply and directly of the essentials' Evening Standard Beset by arguments and the fear that things between them may be falling apart, writer Emmanuel Carrere and his partner, Helene, journey to Sri Lanka to spend Christmas along the coast.
