A luminous tale of a marriage that isn't always perfect. Dividing into two parts, the end of the relationship precedes the beginning, giving the novel a pathos it wouldn't have if written in chronological order. Cunningham has a rare gift for language, descriptions of the sea stand out particularly. His descriptions are so vibrant the reader can feel the emotional texture of the lives of his characters. Perfect for fans of John McGahern.
