Summary
A New York Times Bestseller Winner of the Man Booker Prize. Max Morden is a middle-aged Irishman who, soon after his wife's death, has gone back to the seaside town where he spent his summer holidays as a child - a retreat from the grief, anger, and numbness of life without her. What Max comes to understand about the past, and about its indelible effects on him, is at the center of this elegiac, vividly dramatic, beautifully written novel about love, loss and the unpredictable power of memory. "In a word, this novel is brilliant." Booklist
Summary
Following the death of his wife, Max Morden retreats to the seaside town of his childhood summers, where his own life becomes inextricably entwined with the members of the vacationing Grace family
