After Everything: A Novel

Where to Buy?
Sandy thought he had it all – money, fame, success, a gorgeous wife and two lovely children. But he realises too late that he’s taken it all for granted. His career is foundering, his grown children have moved to the other side of the world, and his now ex-wife is living happily alone in a picturesque French town – until she meets an irresistible American philosophy professor.
Meanwhile, Sandy’s longtime friends are struggling through their own transitions – first love, marital troubles, addiction – as they watch him edge closer to self-destruction. Then a close call prompts him to leave London to attempt a reconciliation with his son and daughter. But before he can make amends, he must confront the secret tragedy that has haunted him, and his relationships, for decades.
