Real, Paperback / softback Book


Greg is a fading middle-aged actor whose family life has long since become stale; Sally is a struggling young playwright.

When they're thrown together to do a West End play, they plunge into a reckless affair that seems to offer an escape into fantasy . . . until Sally makes a shocking discovery that brings them face to face with real life again.

A novel of sharp insight, written with warmth and compelling honesty, Real is a brilliant portrait of modern illusions about love.
