A NoveleBook - 2013
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, and a finalist for the National Book Award: Alison Lurie's supremely entertaining masterwork about two American scholars, both alone in London, who find romance in the most unlikely places. Prim, divorced, and middle-aged, Vinnie Miner gave up on love long ago. On her way to London to research a book about children's folk rhymes ;a scholarly pursuit that even her fellow academics sneer at—she finds herself sitting next to the man who will change the course of her life. Brash and na\u00efve, he is a sanitary engineer from Oklahoma on a package vacation. Also in London is Vinnie's colleague, the young, handsome English professor Fred Turner. His marriage and self-esteem are both on the rocks, but he is about to find consolation in the arms of the most beautiful actress in England.
