It’s 2007. At 45, Lisa is fighting growing feelings for Tom that threaten to rob her of Dan, the person she’s always loved most in the world. She wants Tom badly, but she can’t (or won’t) tell him about Dan, and Tom finds himself in a competition that he can’t possibly understand. As for Dan, he’s a cheeky, exasperating mystery: a twenty-year-old who lives in Lisa’s house and heart and is steeped in the style and the vibrant music of the British post-punk era.
Dan brings Lisa a joy she can’t bear to explain, but with her chance for a life with Tom slipping away, she must finally find the courage to let Dan go. It’s the most terrifying—and liberating—decision she’s made since a fateful night 25 years ago.
Taking its title from the Church song, Almost With You is written with Elizabeth Coleman’s customary wit, warmth and elegance. With flashbacks to the ’70s and ’80s lovingly captured, Almost With You is a funny and deeply affecting look at love, loss and letting go.
