About this item
Enigmatic Claire is 29 and lives alone in Marylebone. She is content with her life, although she recognises she has become more reserved and independent since her wilder student days. She works in the basement of a second-hand bookshop, where she prepares articles for eventual publication as a posthumous tribute to the deceased owner.
Her life changes when Martin Gibson, a faded scholar, passes through. She becomes more interested when she meets his wife, a far more spectacular personality. But the unexpected news of this woman's death releases emotions that were not entirley foreseen.
Claire finds people mysterious and from afar often alters the scrift of their lives. Her delief that 'everything is connected' is no defnece against the shock that awaits her.
