A Pulitzer Prize-winning Author

For over a year, Alan Mackenzie has had a bad back. It is ruining his life, and also the life of his loyal and affectionate wife, Jane. After years of happy marriage Jane, to her horror, is becoming a resentful caregiver; Alan is becoming a resentful caregetter. Meanwhile, another couple has arrived at the university where they both work. Delia Delaney, famous for her writing and her pre-Raphaelite beauty, and her husband, Henry, are about to totally alter Alan and Jane's lives.

Available only in Core 6 & 7.
