Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0141803169, Audio CD)According to her own complex moral calculations, Katie Carr has earned her affair. She's a doctor, after all, and doctors are decent people, and on top of that, her husband David is the self-styled Angriest Man in Holloway. When David suddenly becomes good, however - properly, maddeningly, give-away-all-his-money good - Katie's sums no longer add up and she is forced to ask herself some very hard questions...Nick Hornby's brilliant new novel offers a painfully funny account of modern marriage and parenthood and asks that most difficult of questions: what does it mean to be good?
(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:21 -0400)
Just when the pair is on the verge of divorce, English doctor Katie Carr's cynical husband, David, undergoes a spiritual awakening and invites a faith healer to live with them and their two children.
