Lost in the monotony of daily life and the undertow of memories, Benjamin meets Kim, a woman eighteen years his junior who bears a sadness in her green eyes that is connected to a scar that runs from the base of her throat to her ribs. Slowly, Benjamin and Kim, who for entirely different reasons believe themselves beyond repair, begin to admit that this might actually be the time of their lives.Michael Kun is the author of the novels You Poor Monster, My Wife and My Dead Wife, and The Locklear Letters as well as the short story collection Corrections to My Memoirs.
