Fan of Ann Tyler?
Noah's compass : a novel by Anne Tyler features protagonist Liam Pennywell who wakes up in the hopital with no memory of being attacked in his apartment. This is a compassionate, humorous account of his quest to retrieve his memory. A former teacher, divorced twice, Liam searches to recover those lost hours and is led into an unlikely new relationship. An exploration of Liam's life and how he is transformed. Quintessential Tyler treatment of one rather eccentric man's search for wholeness. I have been a longstanding fan of Ann Tyler and Noah's Compass did not disappoint.
