From the author of High Fidelity and About a Boy, a bold novel about
a woman who, confronted by her husband’s sudden and extreme
spiritual conversion, is forced to learn “how to be good”—for better
or worse. “A bitingly clever novel of ideas... [a] profound, worrying,
hilarious, sophisticated, compulsive novel.”—The Sunday Times
(UK). “Dares to be witty, intelligent, and emotionally generous all
at once.”— The New York Times Book Review.
