'Us' is my fourth novel, a tragi-comedy about marriage, parenthood, travel, art and science.
Douglas Petersen is woken in the middle of the night and told by his wife, Connie, that she is leaving him. Their teenage son, Albie, is leaving for college in the autumn and she intends to follow soon after.
Douglas loves his wife. The thought of a life alone terrifies him, and he resolves to make their last family holiday into the trip of a lifetime, one that will draw the three of them closer, win the respect of his son and make Connie fall in love with him all over again.
The hotels are booked, the ticket bought, the itinerary planned. What could possibly go wrong?
