In this wryly funny novel, Adam tries to juggle midlife, an ex-wife, a new partner and a careering career as he contemplates life’s promises and pitfalls.

Adam is fortyish, coasting along and relatively content, while his glamorous partner, Louise, takes centre stage. But half a lifetime ago his aspirations were higher, and he was certain about the future he’d share with Judy. When an unexpected invitation arrives, uncomfortable truths resurface and the secrets of the past spill out. How will Adam manage attending a reunion in the company of both Louise and Judy — not to mention stepfatherhood and a state of siege at work?
