FREE FIRST CHAPTER: The A to Z of You and Me

Regular Price:$0.00

Publisher's Summary

I’m lying here in a bed, my head full of regret, with only a little bird flitting through a tree to comfort me. Friends want to visit, but I refuse them. So my carer, Sheila, has given me a task to keep me occupied. An A to Z list. Think of a part of my body for each letter. Tell a little tale about it. When I reach H for heart, what will I say? How we loved to string crocheted hearts in trees? How our hearts steadily unravelled?

So I begin with A. Adam’s apple. Will you be there to catch me when I fall?

What the Critics Say

"I loved The A-Z of You and Me. James Hannah has an unerring eye for the tiniest detail within the biggest picture. This wry and tender love story is powerful, lyrical and moving." (Catherine O'Flynn, author of Costa prize-winning What Was Lost)

    "The Poignancy of Memories"

    This is the first chapter of a longer novel yet I found that it stands alone as a short story quite well. Even if you may have no plans to listen to the full length novel, I recommend listening to this FREE section of it.

    The man is dying. There's no denying that. No false hope of a miraculous recovery. Just an underlying and almost unbearable sense of loneliness that is only brightened by the man's favorite nurse. The interaction between the man and the nurse is not only touching, but bittersweet with the contrast between the normal and busy life of the healthy nurse and the rubble that is the man's own life. In between their interaction, the man reminisces over different vignettes of his life with the most touching of them all centered around the mysterious--and absent--woman who seemed to have been the love of his life.

    I plan on listening to the full novel sometime in the future. I can already tell that this is the type of story with a skilled enough writer and voice narrator that will leave me sniffling and wiping my eyes. The writing is beautiful and I love the narrator's voice.

    "Wish It Was Longer!"

    A fabulous concept. This short story could well have been a long book but everything we need to know is here. It's a book that makes the reader think about so many things at once. What's the difference between a little mistake and disaster? Why me? If only...

    Too bad it is that short. I wish it would be more. The narrative voice is excellent as well.

    "Potential tearjerker"

    To little of the story to really get into... Yet very human and sort of sweetly sad. The narration is good.
