About this title


In this witty first novel, the ordinary confronts the romantic with darkly hilarious results. Solicitor James Jones wryly recounts a year spent unraveling the mysteries of his glamorous international lawyer-client's complicated private life and realizes that there are no faily-tale existences--only lives to be lived, and that, for himself, this is the life.

About the Author:

Joseph O'Neill is an Irish barrister living in New York. He is the author of two other novels, 'Netherland', which was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize, and 'The Breezes', and a memoir, 'Blood-Dark Track'.
