Marcus Conway has come a long way to stand in the kitchen of his home and remember the rhythms and routines of his life. Considering with his engineer's mind how things are constructed - bridges, banking systems, marriages - and how they may come apart. Mike McCormack captures with tenderness and feeling, in continuous, flowing prose, a whole life suspended in a single hour.

Maybe this book loses something in the listening as it seemed to me that it was more an exercise in technique rather than story-telling. It’s not bad and is well delivered by Tim Gerard Reynolds but, in the end, he is just relaying events, feelings, frustrations and observations that the majority of listeners will have already experienced for real. It reminded me of “Eileen” in as far as I kept waiting or something to happen.

A wonderful book, wonderfully read.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the perfomance of the reader. It gave an insight into the beauty of a long term loving relationship and the local politics of Ireland during the recent recession.
