Where to buy it


In a series of alternating monologues, both halves of a couple examine close to 35 years of marriage. Years of togetherness, and of growing apart; of opening up the door to their studios, and of shutting each other out. Best known as a literary critic and one of Canada’s foremost literary translators, Lori Saint-Martin delivers an elegant and refined debut novel that explores the mystery of what connects us to each other.
