From the award-winning author of Art and Desolation comes this bitingly funny new novel that follows the absurd adventures of a man struggling with a midlife crisis. Adam Haberberg is losing his sight in his left eye. His new book is a flop. And his marriage isn't doing too well. But while sitting one day on a park bench, he sees an old friend from high school, Marie Th r se, and suddenly his whole life seems to change. Adam soon finds that his own life has somehow become intertwined with Marie Th r se's, throwing everything into question. A wry tragicomedy and a nuanced study of a man in the throes of an existential crisis, Adam Haberberg has the same wit and panache that have marked all of Yasmina Reza's work to date.
Yasmina Reza is a playwright and novelist whose plays have all been multi-award-winning critical and popular international successes, translated in more than thirty languages. She lives in Paris.
