A possible life

by Sebastian Faulks | 21 March 2024
PAPERBACK
'Profound . . . Faulks evokes a deep compassion' OBSERVER 'Does what a good novel should - it unsettles, it moves, and it forces us to question who we are' SUNDAY TIMES 'A delight . . . moving and exciting' DAILY TELEGRAPH Five lives overlap across two centuries. School teacher Geoffrey's war takes him to the brink of sanity; Billy's fortitude lifts him from the Victorian slums in London; Elena and Jeanne interrogate the notion of the soul, from opposite points of view, a century apart. And for Anya, a young American singer-songwriter, only her producer Jack can understand the depths of their bond as art and life collide. In a symphony of fiction, A Possible Life defies the boundaries of the novel, to explore the deepest questions of how we are connected to one another. 'A Possible Life is more than the sum of its parts . . . the stories acquire power as resonances between them accrete. Only at the end do you realise you've been won over by their quiet, glinting virtuosity' THE TIMES
