One part Melissa Bank and another part George Saunders, When to Walk is a laceratingly funny and deeply compassionate take on how one woman reinvents herself and learns that, no matter how late, there can always be a new beginning in life. When Ramble's husband calls her an autistic vampire" and abruptly ends their marriage over lunch, she isn't quite sure what to do. She has no rent money, a looming deadline for work, and new neighbors who seem to have involved her in petty crime. Faced with the dissolution of a life she hadn't really wanted, Ramble takes stock of what she has left. In Rebecca Gowers's sharp debut, Ramble begins to reconsider everything her screwy family and unreliable but loyal friends have taught her so far. She spends a week taking apart her life and deciding which parts she wants to keep. Called a mercurial delight" by the New Statesman and brilliant . . . unforgettable" by Scotland on Sunday, When to Walk is a disarmingly honest portrayal of a young woman coming into her ownlit with hope, rich in magnificent characters, and hilariously wise.
