Summary
A noted Shakespeare scholar looks back on his life with love and regret in this "moving, beautiful story . . . about what can be repaired and what can't" (Karen Joy Fowler, author of We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves). Until John Wilson met the warm, wise woman who became his fourth wife, the object of his most intense devotion had been the works of William Shakespeare. From his time as a student, memorizing Romeo and Juliet and half a dozen other plays, to his evangelical zeal as a professor, John's faith in the Bard has shaped his life. But now his mental powers have been so diminished by dementia that his wife had to move him to a residential care facility. Even there, as he struggles to understand what's going on around him, John's knowledge of the plays helps him make sense of his fractured world. Yet, when his only child, Miranda, comes to visit after a decade of estrangement, John begins to question some of his deepest convictions. In his devotion to Shakespeare, did he lose his way? Did he wrong the child who wronged him? The story of an imperfect father and a wounded daughter's efforts to reconnect, Still Time is a rare novel that celebrates redemption and ends on a resounding note of hope, reminding us that there is always time to live fully and love deeply, so long as we are alive. "This book is for anyone who appreciates a beautifully written, character-driven story . . . Heartbreaking in the best possible way." —Booklist, starred review
