Claude is a man lost. He is not interested in what the next moment brings, does not hope nor wish nor fear. In this state he encounters RM, an angel. They become connected to each other against their will and set off on a journey through South London which provides the setting for a funny, personal and moving exploration of grief.
Unwittingly guided by the angel, Claude begins to explore feelings he thought he’d left behind such as hope and fear until he finally speaks openly about love and despair.
In passing the reader is offered well researched details about the South London suburb of Tooting and a host of references to literature, film and music which the two protagonists share in exchanges full of humour and compassion.
However, the story, like love and life, is ephemeral.
