Review

Advance praise for "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry"
"When it seems almost too late, Harold Fry opens his battered heart and lets the world rush in. This funny, poignant story about an ordinary man on an extraordinary journey moved and inspired me."--Nancy Horan, author of "Loving Frank"
"There's tremendous heart in this debut novel by Rachel Joyce, as she probes questions that are as simple as they are profound: Can we begin to live again, and live truly, as ourselves, even in middle age, when all seems ruined? Can we believe in hope when hope seems to have abandoned us? I found myself laughing through tears, rooting for Harold at every step of his journey. I'm still rooting for him."--Paula McLain, author of "The Paris Wife"
" "
"Marvelous! I held my breath at his every blister and cramp, and felt as if by turning the pages, I might help his impossible quest succeed."--Helen Simonson, author of" Major Pettigrew's Last Stand"
"Harold's journey is ordinary and extraordinary; it is a journey through the self, through modern society, through time and landscape. It is a funny book, a wise book, a charming book--but never cloying. It's a book with a savage twist--and yet never seems manipulative. Perhaps because Harold himself is just wonderful. . . . I'm telling you now: I love this book."--Erica Wagner, "The Times "(UK)
"The odyssey of a simple man . . . original, subtle and touching."--Claire Tomalin, author of "Charles Dickens: A Life"
""The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" takes the most ordinary and unassuming of men and turns him into a hero for us all. To go on this journey with Harold will not only break your heart, it might just also heal it."--Tiffany Baker, author of "The Little Giant of Aberdeen County"
"A gentle and genteel charmer, brimming with British quirkiness yet quietly haunting in its poignant and wise examination of love and devotion. Sure to become a book-club favorite."-- "Bookli

Praise for "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry"

"[A] gorgeously poignant novel of hope and transformation."--"O: The Oprah Magazine"
"You have to love Harold Fry, a man who set out one morning to mail a letter and then just kept going. . . . Like Christian in John Bunyan's "The Pilgrim's Progress," Harold becomes Everyman in the eyes of those who encounter him. . . . Harold's journey, which parallels Christian's nicely but not overly neatly, takes him to the edge of death and back again. It will stick with you, this story of faith, fidelity and redemption."--"Minneapolis Star Tribune"
"For all of us perfectly responsible, stoop-shouldered suburbanites wearing a path in the living-room carpet, Harold's ridiculous journey is a cause for celebration. This is Walter Mitty skydiving. This is J. Alfred Prufrock not just eating that peach, but throwing the pit out the window, rolling up his trousers and whistling to those hot mermaids. Released from the cage of his own passivity, Harold feels transformed, though he keeps his tie on. . . . In this bravely unpretentious and unsentimental tale, she's cleared space where miracles are still possible." --"Washington Post"
"[R]emarkable. . . . I can't think of a better recommendation for summer reading. And take your time, just as Harold does."--"USA Today," four out of four stars review
[A] story of present-day courage. . . . . about how easily a mousy, domesticated man can get lost and how joyously he can be refound."--Janet Maslin, "New York Times"

"From its charming beginning to its startling and cathartic denouement, "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" is a comic and tragic joy."--Cleveland Plain Dealer
"When it seems almost too late, Harold Fry opens his battered heart and lets the world rush in. This funny, poignant story about an ordinary man on an extraordinary journey moved and inspired me."--Nancy Horan, author of "Loving Frank"
"There's trem

Review

Advance praise for "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry"

"Oh, to be a pilgrim in yachting shoes and waxed cotton jacket, fueled only by a sudden burning need to save a dying friend. Harold Fry is infuriating, hilarious, and completely out of his depth, but I held my breath at his every blister and cramp and felt, as if by turning the pages, that I might help his impossible quest succeed. Marvelous!"--Helen Simonson, author of "Major Pettigrew's Last Stand"

"The odyssey of a simple man . . . original, subtle, and touching."--Claire Tomalin, author of "Charles Dickens: A Life"
