“it was astonishing, and I remember it even today: the realization that the world was not as it seemed. That the stars that appeared to hang motionless above me both moved and did not move, because the earth below me was not actually still. That what i saw might not be reality, but that it was possible to understand it through careful observation, through the instruments that scientists had built to peer into space.” This is pitched as a companion novel to Last Night at the Telegraph Club. While we do get closure on with Lily and Kath, and you hear similar tones and some parallel, it stands on it's own to it's predecessor. Exploring first love and first loss, falling in love with someone you never expected. Lo paints the story so beautifully, connecting the past that was brought to us from Last Night to the present and future. Lo writes with such tenderness and rich texture.
