Excerpt from Looking for Eden

“When Jane and I divorced. I was reminded of a saying I once heard, that when you become a widow you remember all the good in the person you had taken from you, but when you divorce you are left with little but enmity, the feelings that determined why you fell apart. When Jane and I sat down in that pub that night to scratch out on a beer mat the terms of our separation, I think we both kept the essence of this in our hearts, and we were more successful than most. We kept the smiling family photos and the home movies as a kind of passport to congeniality, and we threw the disappointment and the arguments out with the trash.”
