Birth; marriage; death. And everything in between.

As day breaks on another ordinary day, the townsfolk of Grover's Corners go about their business: newspapers are delivered; people go to work; gardens are tended to. And a boy and girl fall in love. But as life's events unfold and a community comes together, one question remains: "do any human beings ever realise life as they live it? Every, every minute?"

"A superbly written, gloriously observed, tough, and breathtaking statement of what it is to be alive" Edward Albee
