"A Poignant Tale of Love and Family." - Kirkus Reviews

The debut novel by Canadian/American writer, Pradeep Persaud.

Beginning in 1975, this odyssey about love, life, and laughter transpires over three decades, and follows the lives of two childhood friends turned lovers from the height of the Cold War to the depths of 9/11, from the dawn of the World Wide Web to the madness of the dotcoms, and from unimaginable wealth to unrelenting destitution before climaxing in a bizarre and ironic twist.

Triumphs and tragedies; premonitions and nightmares; dramatic twists of plot and gut-busting laughter form the backdrop to the ever-powerful attraction between these two individuals whose lives are perpetually affected, for better or for worse, by extraordinary events beyond their control.

This Tragicomedy transports readers from coastal South America to bustling Manhattan; from laid-back California to roaring Niagara Falls; and from Mexico and Europe to the secluded beaches off the coast of Thailand, while constantly raising the question, ‘What is the meaning of it all?’

The story is told in the second and third person POVs.
