The Missing World
When Hazel loses three years of her past after a traffic accident wipes out her memory, she doesn't remember her quarrel with Jonathan—or that she left him and moved out of their house. All she knows is that he has dropped everything to care for her and professes to adore her. While he begins to rewrite their history, two other misfits—an American sojourner and a luckless English actress—knock about London, each of them haunted by indelible memories they long to forget.
Praise for The Missing World
"Spellbinding and excruciating... At once bluntly honest and marvelously deft and graceful, The Missing World combines unblinking, chillingly accurate observation with enormous compassion... what's astonishing is how much the novel feels like real life—and how ingeniously it used the connections and parallels among its disparate protagonists to subtly raise, and then decline to answer, a whole series of profound and mysterious questions about the nature of memory and of love." Elle
"An enthralling novel... that makes you feel as well as think." The New York Times
"Darkly humorous... A Shakespearean comedy with Murdochian overtones." The New Yorker
