Product description

Review

"One of the sweetest, most delicately-written stories I've read in a long time. One man's walk along the length of England to save the life of a dying woman. Each chapter describes a different encounter along the way, with a definite nod to Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Philosophical, intriguing, and profoundly moving." (Richard Madeley Foyles website)

"Uplifting, funny and delicate" (Jon Stock The Daily Telegraph)

"From the moment I met Harold Fry, I didn't want to leave him. Impossible to put down" (Erica Wagner The Times)

"Deploying meticulously precise and deceptively light-as-air prose, Joyce takes Harold across the bitter wastelands of regret to the sunlit uplands of emotional redemption with a ­clarity that is at times almost unbearably moving" (Karen Robinson The Sunday Times)

"Distinguished by remarkable confidence... Polished to perfection... Joyce's experience as a playwright shows in her ear for dialogue and eye for character diatom - even the walk-on parts stay with you as real people. She handles her material with deceptive lightness but Harold's journey towards a better version of himself is totemic. To read about him is to be moved to follow him" (Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2012. Rachel Joyce is the Specsavers National Book Awards New Writer of the Year 2012.

A tender, quietly comic, heartstopping first novel from a powerful new voice in fiction.
