Life, love and death, those three cornerstones of the human condition that seem hell-bent on letting you down 'How's about a seven-week romance? you asked, and it never crossed my mind to refuse.' Here, in Glasgow, Moira knows that love is about Andy. The living out of faults and shamefaced flaws together; coming home from work and forgetting to kiss; tossing arbitrary insults around without a care and bothering to clean up the mess afterwards. But while Moira's best friend, Connie, is dying of breast cancer, Ewan, a man she once loved, reappears on the scene. The reckless intensity of their passion contrasts sharply with her routine life with Andy and, much more brutally, with the rapid deterioration of Connie's health. Notions of loyalty and betrayal are called into question in a powerful and poignant collision between the present and the past. Within the emotional carnage is a painfully human story of grief and desire, of longing, love and loss.
