Synopsis

What if you could rewrite the past . . . ?

Marc Laurent is being held captive. Every night, a woman he knows only as Josephine comes to visit him. And every night, she and Marc tell each other stories about the daughter he lost. As they unfold - on a journey across America, into the past, and into a future that may never come - father and daughter start to find their way towards understanding each other again.

Lyrical, seductive and utterly compelling, Daniel Lowe's All That's Left to Tell is a novel about second chances and the stories we tell to make sense of ourselves.

'An utterly engrossing novel about the universal need to tell stories in order to survive, to remember, and to be remembered' Laila Lalami

Like Tim O'Brien's After Cacciato, All That's Left To Tell celebrates not just the power of storytelling but the deeply human need for it in even the most dire situations. Alternately gripping and dreamy, Daniel Lowe's debut imagines what the stories we tell reveal about ourselves, and how they may save us

Stewart O'Nan, author of West of Sunset

All That’s Left To Tell took me completely by surprise. This moving, imaginative, intricate novel is written in a voice so sure and so deft that it’s hard to believe that it’s Daniel Lowe’s first. If you value the power of story, the cathartic effect of seeing another’s life in intimate detail, then please join me in celebrating this momentous debut
