A novel about love, music and coming to terms with the past, from the author of the international bestseller The Rosie Project.

On the cusp of fifty, Adam Sharp has a loyal partner, earns a good income as an IT contractor and is the music-trivia expert at quiz nights. It’s the lifestyle he wanted, but something’s missing.

Two decades ago, on the other side of the world, his part-time piano playing led him into a passionate relationship with Angelina Brown, who’d abandoned law studies to pursue her acting dream. She gave Adam a chance to make it something more than an affair but he didn’t take it. And now he can’t shake off his nostalgia for what might have been.

Then, out of nowhere, Angelina gets in touch. What does she want? Does Adam dare to live dangerously? How far will he go for a second chance?
Industry Reviews
`Oscillates between profound emotional depths and absolute hilarity...So much fun!' -- Toni Collette

`Pop-obsessed, highly readable new novel from the bestselling author of The Rosie Project.' * Mail on Sunday *
`We love The Rosie Project author Graeme Simsion's The Best of Adam Sharp.' * Fabulous, Sun on Sunday *
`What seems like a run-of-the-mill chick-lit tale about "the one that got away" becomes a complicated exploration of marriage, what it means to love someone, and how life gets in the way.' * Publishers Weekly *
`That these books are as funny and charming and often touching as they are is a tribute to the skill with which they're written.' * NPR *
`While Simsion's touch is delicate, this is a dark comedy of manners, an adult entertainment that extends the range of his first, more light-hearted book.' * Age *
`Ably proves that the romance genre isn't strictly the domain of women.' * Executive Style *

`The Best of Adam Sharp is a novel that asks important questions, and is as moving as it is entertaining' * Booklover Book Reviews *
