EN SAVOIR PLUS Résumé

When Carl met Vikki their lives seemed set fair - they were best friends, partners, soulmates. They got married, they made plans, their lives stretched out ahead of them. Then, at the age of thirty-six, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and their world was turned upside down.

Together they fought the disease and had a miracle daughter, Romy. They started a new life in the Norfolk countryside and travelled the world. For a while it looked as if they'd beaten the illness but in March of 2007 Vikki fell ill again on a family holiday and died in a Hong Kong hospital.

The Owl at the Window is a memoir of those events and Carl's attempts to rebuild his life as a single father. It's told in a series of snapshots, some poignant, some harrowing, some blackly comic; the uplifting effect of a football match on the eve of chemotherapy; the Kafkaesque nightmare of trying to close his deceased wife's bank account; Romy building a cardboard effigy of her mum and taking it to school; a surprising encounter with a widow that points to a brighter future.

The Owl at the Window is a searingly emotional, ultimately uplifting story of grief and love, of ordinary people surviving the worst of things and learning to live again.
