Wikipedia says, "Eleanor Rigby is a 2004 novel by Douglas Coupland, about a lonely woman at ages 36 and 42. The novel is written as a first-person narrative by the main character, Liz Dunn.

The novel centres on changes to Liz's life when someone from her past unexpectedly re-enters her life. It is written in a light, often comic, tone, but resonates on many deeper issues, including loneliness, family, religious visions and multiple sclerosis."

It took me a bit to get into the book, but having enjoyed Coupland before (I read
Generation X and Microserfs back in the day) I decided to persevere. And I sure am glad I did. This is a funny, tragic and surprising story about loneliness and about a middle-aged woman finding herself and coming back to life. And what's best, it ends up with a touch of hope. Recommended!

Thank you, Annimanni. This is a new book and author to me, but based on what you write above, I look forward to reading it. And what a coincidence: I just this month read a book inspired by the Beatles song Eleanor Rigby!
