From the Back Cover
It is 1962. The first avocado pears are appearing at the greengrocer's, people are thinking about carpeting their lavatories and boxing in their banisters, and Ronnie Glover, housepainter, husband and father, is feeling the first vague stirrings of discontent with his life.
Then, out of the blue, the fabulous, sophisticated (and married) Jacqueline bursts into his life and teaches him to tango. She seems to offer everything he ever dreamt of. But is it all too good to be true? What can a woman who has travelled the world want with a man who carries a stub of pencil behind his ear? And are the Ten O'Clock horses of Ronnie's painful childhood awake and sniffing the wind?

I thought this was a fun and quick read! It did take a bit of time getting used to the way it's written - mainly speech and thoughts, but was a good read.

I've read a few books by this author and I'm always surprised by how different the style is in each one. this is a wistful little story told through the thoughts of Ron Glover , a man disappointed with life. A quick read to behold released.
