From the book jacket: Hornby mines the
hearts and psyches of four lost souls who connect just when
they've reached the end of the line. Meet Martin, JJ, Jess,
and Maureen. Four people who come together on New Year's Eve:
a former TV talk show host, a musician, a teenage girl, and a
mother. Three are British, one is American. They encounter one
another on the roof of Topper's House, a London destination
famous as the last stop for those ready to end their lives.
This is a tale of connections made and missed, punishing
regrets, and the grace of second chances.
