After a long career and marriage set in the affluent Connecticut "land of steady habits," Anders Hill decides that much of his life has been misspent fulfilling exhausting obligations that he can no longer value. To rectify decades of tedium, this new retiree drops his wife, buys a condo and embarks on a campaign to free himself. Of course, his belated coming-of-age story becomes much more complicated almost as soon as he begins enacting it. Ted Thompson's first novel already has been compared to the works of Cheever and Updike, but this is no imitation of older works; this is a portrait of contemporary society that most of us can recognize.
