Tras la pérdida de su mujer, Michael Turner se traslada a Londres, al acomodado barrio de Hampstead, donde establece una cercana relación de amistad con los Nelson, la familia que vive en la casa de al lado. Josh, Samantha y sus dos hijas pequeñas representan lo que Michael teme que jamás conseguirá: estabilidad familiar y un hogar. Esta nueva amistad parece servir de cura para Michael hasta que un día algo cambia radicalmente sus destinos... Entonces, de la noche a la mañana, Michael se encuentra ante un grandísimo dilema moral.Ambientada en el Londres actual, Vi a un hombre es una magistral exploración de las relaciones humanas.

He quickly develops a friendship with his neighbors, Josh and Samantha Nelson, and their two young daughters.

The answer, revealed poignantly in Sheers' masterly prose, is eloquent, resonant, and completely unforgettable.
