An exquisite new short story from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Small Things Like These and Foster. ** An Irish Times Book of the Year ** 'A genuine once-in-a-generation writer.' The TimesAfter an uneventful Friday at the Dublin office, Cathal faces into the long weekend and takes the bus home. There, his mind agitates over a woman named Sabine with whom he could have spent his life, had he acted differently. All evening, with only the television and a bottle of champagne for company, thoughts of this woman and others intrude - and the true significance of this particular date is revealed. From one of the finest writers working today, Keegan's new story asks if a lack of generosity might ruin what could be between men and women.
