The comedy team of Carter and Sharp thrives for 30 years, from the vaudeville backwaters to Hollywood, until one unforgivable act leads to another and the partnership begins to unravel. An exploration of the fragile structures that underlie love affairs, friendships and families. In 1996, Elizabeth McCracken appeared on Granta?s list of America?s best young novelists.
'Exquisitely evokes, on an impressively human scale, a long-gone epoch of American comedy. This is a love story - a tale of two men in love with humour' Elle
