The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion (September 2016)

The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion (September 2016)Reviewed on Wireless Books Otago Access Radio 105.4FM 1st October 2016 also on Podcast

I was back home, reading up on Pete Best, the Beatle's forgotten first drummer, when the email popped up in the bottom corner of my screen.
From: angelina.brown@tpg.com.au
That was it.   Hi.  After twenty-two years, twenty without any contact at all, out of the blue, Angelina Brown, my Great Lost Love, decides to change the world and writes Hi.

On the Cusp of Fifty, Adam Sharp has a loyal partner, earns a good income as an IT contractor and is the music-trivia expert at quiz nights.  It's the lifestyle he wanted, but something's missing.

Two decades ago, on the other side of the world, his part-time piano playing led him into a passionate relationship with Angelina Brown, who'd abandoned law studies to pursue her acting dream.  She gave Adam a chance to make it something more than an affair - but he didn't take it.  And now he can't shake off his nostalgia for what might have been.

Then, out of nowhere, Angelina gets in touch.  What does she want?  Does Adam dare to live dangerously?  How far will he go for a second chance?
