Happy Hour - Relax with a Novel and a Glass of Wine

Anne Tyler

The Beginner's Goodbye

(2012)

Aaron, the middle-aged, emotionally repressed hero of this novel set in a cosy neighbor-hood of Baltimore, has to come to terms with the sudden death of his wife. Apart from her returns from the dead to have conversations with him there are other,  less unsettling encoun-ters, which gradually allow him more insight into himself and his marriage. "...so achingly truthful, so achingly funny, so sad and so real that you can only marvel." (Daily Mail)
