A novel that examines aging and marriage with sincerity and insight
Rupert and Gemma, an elderly couple still very much in love, know that death will inevitably come for one of them before taking the other, so they keep private journals to ensure that the survivors mate will never truly be gone, living on instead through his or her words. Age is the narrative of Rupert and Gemmas lives: their similarities, their differences, and the ways in which the two are irreversibly entwined. Each writes of lifes mundane eventssocial outings, errands, a quiet night at homethat assume wistful meaning when viewed through the lens of memory.
