Product Description
 
'A poignant, piercing meditation on middle age and the passing of time... will linger with you long after the book is closed' Claire Kilroy, Guardian

On a bitterly cold winter's afternoon, Michael and Caitlin escape their unhappy marriages to keep an illicit rendezvous. Once a month, for the past quarter of a century, Coney Island has been their haven; these precious, hidden hours their only nourishment. But now, amid the howling of an angry snowstorm, the shut-down, out-of-season resort feels like the edge of the world. And their lives, suddenly, are on the brink - with news of serious illness on one side, and a move to the Midwest on the other.'A poignant, piercing meditation on middle age and the passing of time... will linger with you long after the book is closed' Claire Kilroy, Guardian
