Description
Will Freeman, a 30-something Londoner, is vaguely in search of a wife, but is simultaneously turned off by the responsibilities that a real life might entail. He befriends young Marcus, son of a single mother with problems, and finds himself being drawn against his will into a tumultuous set of circumstances. Finally he is able, after all, to engage with life in a normal way. A New York Times Notable Book for 1998.
