'Funny, merciless, brilliant... I loved it'
CURTIS SITTENFELD, bestselling author of 
ROMANTIC COMEDY

Seamus, Fyodor, Ivan, Noah and Fatima are running out of time to decide on their futures.

In a university town in the American Midwest, this circle of lovers and friends ask themselves: what is the right thing to stake a life on? Work, love, money, dance, poetry? Is love possible without harm? And what does true connection look like in an age of precarity?

The author of the Booker Prize-shortlisted author of 
Real Life returns with a deeply involving new novel of young men and women trying to work out what they want, and who they are.
