`Sad, funny, wise and unblinkingly honest, this is truly wonderful.' Daily MailCesare is a seventy-seven-year-old widower and cynical troublemaker. He has lived his whole life by his own rules and has no intention of changing now. Aside from an intermittent fling with a nurse called Rossana, he spends his days avoiding the old cat lady next door and screening calls from his children.<
But when the enigmatic Emma moves in next door with her strange and sinister husband, Cesare suspects there is more to their relationship than meets the eye. He enlists the other residents to help him investigate and soon discovers a new and unexpected sense of purpose that leads him to risk everything for a future he had never thought possible. Laced with humour and pathos in equal measure, this is a delightful book to savour, for young and old alike.<
'Immensely charming... Uplifting and very much on the side of life.' Mail on Sunday
