The breathtaking new novel from acclaimed author and comedian Mark Watson: his most powerful and affecting yet.
Dominic Kitchen is a wedding photographer. Every Saturday since his career began in the sixties he has photographed a bride and groom on the happiest day of their lives, captured the moment they tied the knot forever, and then faded away into the background.
But throughout his life, Dominic has felt a knot inside him tighten, threatening his own chance of a happy ever after. And as the years go by, it becomes more difficult to ignore, until the ties that bind threaten to tear him apart…

AL Kennedy, author of Day, Costa Book of the Year
'This book is just AMAZING. It deserves to be read by everyone and would be a fantastic choice for book groups. Beautifully written and utterly gripping, this could well be my favourite novel of the year' Jill Mansell
