Summary
"Sabine is the most mercurial woman Peter Thorpe has ever known. Such is his desire for her that he overturns his whole life--his disillusioned merchant-banker's life--and leaves everything behind, not caring that his lover is of no fixed address, nor that his search for her will take him to the beating heart of New Ageism in northern California. Each of his fellow seekers is in hot pursuit of that elusive something (happiness?), and in their eccentric company Peter stumbles across vistas he had never before dared to imagine... - Edward St. Aubyn is widely considered one of our finest living novelists, with enthusiastic fans including Zadie Smith, Alan Hollinghurst, Alice Sebold, Maria Semple, Bret Easton Ellis, Ann Patchett and many more... - Highly praised in the U.K., On the Edge will be publishing for the first time in America"--
