Mike McCormack captures with tenderness and feeling, in continuous, flowing prose, a whole life, suspended in a single hour.

Marcus Conway has come a long way to stand in the kitchen of his home and remember the rhythms and routines of his life, considering with his engineer's mind how things are constructed - bridges, banking systems, marriages - and how they may come apart.
