Life Before Man


From the author of the New York Times best-selling novels The Handmaid’s Tale - now an Emmy Award-winning Hulu original series - and Alias Grace, now a Netflix original series.   Imprisoned by walls of their own construction, here are three people, each in midlife, in midcrisis, forced to make choices - after the rules have changed. Elizabeth, with her controlled sensuality, her suppressed rage, is married to the wrong man. She has just lost her latest lover to suicide. Nate, her gentle, indecisive husband, is planning to leave her for Lesje, a perennial innocent who prefers dinosaurs to men. Hanging over them all is the ghost of Elizabeth's dead lover...and the dizzying threat of three lives careening inevitably toward the same climax.

5 ratings


Renovation - money, anxiety, good faith, bad checks, tool breakdowns, people meltdowns.    This is the inside story of the reno biz that you won’t see on any home renovation show. It is the real story of the men in tool belts that we let into our homes to transform the way we live. Open Up the Wall is a chronicle of jobs and job sites, unforgettable characters and mind boggling situations. You can’t make this stuff up!  "Hilarious, heartbreaking, and achingly human. This is a riveting memoir. It is reflective of all the things that I decided too early, I wouldn’t be good at, leaving me wondering whether I should have tried them." (Sarah Polley, actor, writer, director) "I found myself caught up in the narrative describing the world of house is a fine book." (Patrick Crean, publisher, Harper Collins Publishing) "Open Up the Wall has you laughing out loud one moment, and crying empathetic tears the next". (Ted Wallace, director, HGTV series The Really Big Flip)
