Publisher Description

The tender and moving novella from the author of A Man Called Ove and Anxious People

'I read this beautifully imagined and moving novella in one sitting, utterly wowed, wanting to share it with everyone I know' Lisa Genova, New York Times bestselling author of Still Alice
_________

Grandpa and Noah are sitting on a bench in a square that keeps getting smaller every day.

As they wait together on the bench, they tell jokes and discuss their shared love of mathematics. Grandpa recalls what it was like to fall in love with his wife, what it was like to lose her. She's as real to him now as the first day he met her, but he dreads the day when he won't remember her.

Sometimes Grandpa sits on the bench next to Ted, Noah's father - Ted who never liked maths, prefers writing and playing guitar, and has waited his entire life for his father to have time for him, to accept him. But in their love of Noah, they have found a common bond.

Grandpa, Ted and Noah all meet here, in this peculiar space that is growing dimmer and more confusing all the time.

And here is where they will learn to say goodbye, the scent of hyacinths in the air, nothing to fear.
