Another stunning literary novel from the author of highly acclaimed The Pink Hotel-longlisted for the Orange Prize, aNew York Times Book Review Editors' Choice, and an O Magazine Debut Novel to Pick Up Now"Eva had always considered leaving to be the most pleasurable moment of any relationship. You know where you are with goodbye: you know that mistakes dissolve, doors open, and soon everything will be possible again."

Leaving has always come naturally to Eva Elliott. The daughter of a pilot, she spent her childhood leaving schools and cities. Now an adult, she enjoys the thrill of saying goodbye much more than the butterflies of a first smile or kiss. There's so much more potential in walking away, and Eva has always had a dangerously vivid imagination. During a rainy summer in Soho, when she becomes fascinated by a golden eagle that has escaped London Zoo to prowl the city, and a beguiling stranger begins appearing around town armed with a conspiratorial smile and a secret, Eva discovers that endings just aren't as easy as they used to be. Is it a flirtation playing out among the crumbling offices, clubs, and alleys of Soho, or something much darker? The line blurs in this haunting story about saying goodbye.
