About this item
Returning to England after a tragic loss, Alfie Budd is disillusioned by his father's infidelity and the effects of age on his beloved grandmother before he engages in a series of meaningless affairs in his quest to rediscover true love.
From the bestselling author of "Man and Boy" and "Man and Wife" comes the charming story of a widower who doesn't believe you get a second chance at love. Full of biting social commentary and overwhelming emotion, "One for My Baby" is a warm and witty novel of love, family, sex, and Tai Chi.
Returning to London from Hong Kong after a brief, idyllic marriage ends in tragedy, Alfie Budd finds his world collapsing. Believing his chance for love has passed, he takes comfort in fleeting affairs with his students at Churchill's Language School while watching his parents' marriage, his grandmother's health, and his career ambitions rapidly deteriorate. But then Alfie meets two people who help him to start healing: the old Chinese man he sees practicing Tai Chi in the park every morning and a single mother who needs Alfie's help in completing her education. Soon, our bereft widower is learning much more than Tai Chi and falling for one student above all others. But can Alfie give up meaningless sex for a meaningful relationship? And how much room in our hearts do we really have for love?
