This is an auction for STILL HERE by Linda Grant. review:

"Alix Rebick is the heroine of Linda Grant's STILL HERE, and at the age of 49 is still feisty, lustful, and larger than life - all the things that "real women" shouldn't be, according to Joseph Shields. She's also single, and hating it. Alix is back in Liverpool watching over her dying mother; Joseph is an American architect, building a hotel as part of Liverpool's regeneration. They meet: she wants him; he admires her, but longs to reunite with his wife Erica back in Chicago. The alternating first-person chapters each ruminate about the past, speculate about the future, and only occasionally refer to the other, despite their involvement - or lack of it - being presented as the novel's pivotal axis. Linda Grant is brilliant at creating setting, historical and contemporary, and her affectionate rendering of Liverpool - warts and all. This observation and precise detail is what brings STILL HERE to life: the turn-of-the-century Jewish diaspora longing for the United States and having to make do with Liverpool; the 1960s city of Alix's youth; her mother's Dresden childhood; her father as saviour-doctor to the Irish poor; early Beatles; and, of course, the weight of the Holocaust. Joseph's rebellion against his rabbinical father, his refusal to recall his fighting in the 1967 Arab-Israeli war, Berkeley and early marriage are also recounted in his sometimes priggish, sometimes uptight and uncomprehending way."
