- A novel about a wine enthusiast's descent into addiction, and "the cheerful face that money can put on an unhappy life" (Publishers Weekly). After dedicating countless hours to building his software company&#8212;an effort that yields him a fortune&#8212;Wilberforce walks into a London restaurant, alone, and orders an extraordinarily expensive 1982 Ch&aacute;teau P&eacute;trus. It is quite an experience&#8212;so he asks for another bottle. From the acclaimed author of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, this novel traces the journey that leads Wilberforce from the top of the world to hitting rock bottom as he revels in his newfound wealth and more: his taste for the finer things, a love affair, and a variety of friendships, including one with an eccentric and enigmatic wine merchant named Francis Black. At some point along the way, Wilberforce, once an ordinary middle-class child and then a driven, lonely workaholic, convinces himself that he's finally found the good life. But as his story unspools, he learns that Black's cellar holds some unpalatable secrets, and that passion comes at a price. "A heart-wrenching tale . . . A mesmerising page-turner." &#8212;The Mail on Sunday "Although Wilberforce's tale carries universal moral significance, wine lovers in particular will find Torday's descriptive and narrative powers compelling." &#8212;Booklist
