"Alexandr and Christine and Zachary and Lydia have been friends since they first met in their twenties. Thirty years later, Alex and Christine are spending a leisurely summer's evening at home when they receive a call from a distraught Lydia: she is at the hospital. Zach is dead. In the wake of this profound loss, the three friends find themselves unmoored; all agree that Zach, with his generous, grounded spirit, was the irreplaceable one they couldn't afford to lose. Inconsolable, Lydia moves in with Alex and Christine. But instead of loss bringing them closer, the three of them find over the following months that it warps their relationships, as old entanglements and grievances rise from the past, and love and sorrow give way to anger and bitterness"--… (mere)

Zachary and Alex were best friends at school, as were Chris and Lydia. In later life, after brief relationships between Alex and Lydia and Zachary and Chris, Alex married Chris and Zachary married Lydia. The four remained close friends, but around 30 years later this is all disrupted when Zachary suddenly dies. In Tessa Hadley’s sensitive contemporary novel, she explores the changes that this brings about as well as looking at the couples’ earlier relationships. This reveals a fascinating portrait of modern life for some, as their friendship waxes and wanes over the course of time and makes for a wholly engaging novel as it explores and contrasts how the four change and develop but still retain much of their character from their earlier lives.

Urban, trendy, cultured. I've always wanted to be part of a friendship group such as the one in this book. But it's also shown me that under the harsh glare of reality - through the very human event that is death - that every collective has it's hidden cracks and nothing is as it seems. We are all people, we are all going to die, and in the mean time all we want is to be loved. Interesting look at friendship, grief and lies. ( )

Tessa Hadley's writing is beautiful, but as a novel it's a disappointment. It feels too much like another generic domestic drama featuring well off Londoners. There's nothing that lifts it out of a well trodden road. ( )

This is the second of Tessa Hadley's novels that I have read. I think Hadley is expert at managing her family ensembles as they deal with their lives and with each other. The four main characters, two married couples who are old friends from school days, are drawn with nuance and I found aspects of each that I identified with and that the author writes about perceptively. The audio book is very well read by Alison Thaw.

Sadly this book was like a cold cup of tea that’s been left on the counter too long. I was initially drawn to the premise of friends coming together after the death of someone in their group. But as the story wound on, I became less and less invested in these characters and their story. I was honestly ready to have this book become yet another DNF (do not finish). The prose and pace of the book seemed to drag on and on, and it took me much longer than I wanted to finish this. Towards the end I was so bored and eager to end this story that I ended up skimming some paragraphs.⁣
If you enjoy languid stories about complicated relationships and in an English setting, this is the book for you ( )
