About this title-Arrogant, middle-aged and angry Alix comes home to Liverpool as her mother lies dying. Resigned to living alone she suddenly finds herself attracted to Joseph, an American architect who has come to the city to build a hotel. He cannot accept that his wife has left him or the trauma of a war he once fought in. Are these survivors meant for each other ? And what happened to a factory in Dresden which long ago made the perfect face cream.
Review---A warm, intelligent and thought-provoking book, beautifully written and with some interesting insights into the human condition. Aspects of what it means to be Jewish (religious or otherwise), the long-reaching arm of the Holocaust, self-knowledge (or lack of it in Joe's case), marital fidelity, sexual desire, the city of Liverpool today and yesterday, family and love are all explored with a compassion and wisdom I found hugely moving.
