A keenly observed book about loneliness and longing ... Winter makes the reader not only smile, but pause and, in the final line, shed an appropriate tear about what it means to be given a second chance.
A touching tale, full of pathos and laugh-out-loud moments.
'I laughed out loud ... this book's one to keep.'
'Original and surprising ... it left me glowing.'
Set against the bleak backdrop of London suburbia and blackly comic, this is an easy read and a gentle tale of the everyday but no less moving for it, perhaps because of it.
This is a black comedy full of wit and deadpan humour...Spiky and charming, bleak and heart-warming at the same time
This is an easy, if poignant, read with delicate (and sometimes more biting) touches of humour
'Winter's style is chatty and his wit gentle, but he has a sharp enough edge to avoid sentimentality.'
Witty, off-beat and moving ... Tom Winter delights with a deadpan turn of phrase.
