Newly single, 35, and uninspired by his job, Jesse Fisher worries that his greatest days are behind him. However irrespective of how a lot he buries his head in a e book, life retains pulling Jesse again. When his favourite school professor invitations him to campus to talk at his retirement dinner, Jesse jumps on the likelihood. He’s ready for the nostalgia of the eating halls and dorm rooms, the events and poetry seminars; what he doesn’t see coming is Zibby – an exquisite, precocious, classical-music-loving sophomore. Zibby awakens scary, thrilling, long-dormant emotions of chance and connection that Jesse thought he had buried endlessly.
