A heartbreaking novel of an extraordinary lifelong friendship.
‘A beautiful ode to lost youth and male friendship written by one of our sharpest observers of modern masculinity.’
‘There is no page on which there is not something surprising or quotable or pleasurable or thought-provoking . . . there is so much in it that is sharp and so much that is sad.’
‘O'Hagan has cast a shimmering light on love and memory, life and loss and on the secrets we keep from those closest to us, sometimes even from ourselves.’
