'This would soon be a new day, all too closely resembling the others, the normal days of his present existence, in which nothing happened nor could be expected to happen' At seventy-three Herz is facing an increasingly bewildering world. He cannot see his place in it or even work out what to do with his final years. Questions and misunderstandings haunt Herz like old ghosts.

Herz believes that he must do something, only he doesn't know what this next big thing in life should be . . . 'Beautifully written, it draws you in and holds you fast' Daily Mail
