Baker & Taylor
While considering whether or not to propose marriage to an old friend, to make a trip to Paris, to sell his home, and to start afresh, Herz also ponders what he is going to do with the remainder of his life to make it meaningful and satisfying. By the Booker Prize-winning author of The Bay of Angels. 35,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
Making Things Better captures the quandaries of aging: the misunderstanding of an increasingly modern, alien world, awkward conversations with passersby; even more awkward encounters with longtime friends and acquaintances; the anxieties posed by age and uncertainty - and the bizarre, magnificent self-knowledge that perhaps only age, reflection, and experience can bring.
