This title is a Joan's Pick.

Quirky, gentle, improbable and charming - this book is a labour of love from someone who sees the irony and pettiness in much of life, and reflects it back to us in ways ... that warm the heart.

Jo Haak is a financial analyst in the City of London. Fearing that a global financial collapse from a software programme which he wrote and which is rampantly out of control is imminent, he flees London and some time later is washed up on a beach in Cornwall.

There the good people of the town of St Piran rescue him and take him in, to a life so completely unlike the one he#s been living til then that it's like night and day. This rich boy from the City, in hiding from the Masters of the Universe, discovers a gentler, kinder, slower way of living. And finding some good in himself, he single handedly returns the favour and saves the townspeople from what he believes is their impending doom - the one for which he was originally responsible.

This book casts a wry eye over the way we live and I loved it.
Joan.

These products are due for release on the date shown. Many books have a specific release date that we must comply with, so these titles are not available to purchase unless the release date has been reached, and stock has been delivered on time.

When we can, we dispatch your pre order on the evening before the product is released. Depending on your delivery address, these orders can be delivered the very next day.

What happens if the goods are damaged when I open them up?

Should any damage be found after opening your parcel due to the damage being concealed (i.e. not obvious due to packaging) please notify Whitcoulls within 24 hours of delivery. We can discuss replacement or refund options, and will have the courier driver collect the damaged item and return it to us. Please Contact Us
