"If Eleanor Rigby poses a 'problem' its problem is loneliness. As evoked by the title, Coupland's novel is about the void that being alone presents us; all of us, at one time or another. Its protagonist, Liz Dunn, is a 36 year old single woman living alone in her spinster's condo, without friends, a social life, or a vase full of flowers to validate her existence.

Manufacturer's product description

Meet Liz Dunn -- a good woman who has become very good at being lonely. Then, after 25 years apart, her amazing 25-year-old son returns into her life. And, at 40, suddenly, she is no longer alone, and must decide what matters more: peace, certainty or love? Once upon a time Liz Dunn was the loneliest girl in the world. One starry night, far from home, she told a stranger she was tired of being lonely. So, he tried to put an end to all that. Twenty-five years later, into her life walks, for the very first time, her son Jeremy. And everything changes. Liz has in the interim learned to live with loneliness, and become rather expert at it, as well as being sparky, competent and sarcastic when necessary. Now, with Jeremy in her life, she has to abandon her certainties as her world expands... This is a novel irradiated by hope and illuminated by trust, that also fizzes with whirls in Vienna, romance in Rome, mayhem in Frankfurt and visions in Vancouver. It is blessed with the commanding presence of an unforgettable heroine in Liz Dunn, with whom Douglas Coupland ascends to a new level of peace and grace in his ever-more-amazing career as an artist of rare capabilities.
