George Lovelace has always done everything by the book – a steady job, wife and children, always there for school plays and sports days, never late for an appointment – so why has he felt perpetually out of step with those around him?
Through his eyes, the reader is given a privileged view of his thoughts and reasoning and the devastating impact they have on his loved ones. Following Susan’s death, George decides to write a book about his great obsession, John Lennon – the ‘world’s greatest songwriter’ – but as the criminal case against him gathers pace, his hero’s decline starts to mirror his own, leaving, in his mind, no way back.
This pacey yet thoughtful novel is the first to explore how high functioning autism affects people of all ages, and it serves as a reminder that neurodiversity always demands empathy and consideration for voices too often left on the margins.
