2015 is Shropshire-based author James Hannah’s year. Chosen as one of the ‘New Faces of Fiction’ by the Observer and one of the ‘Ones to Watch’ by the Huffington Post, his first novel, The A-Z of You and Me (Doubleday, £12.99), will be published on 12 March.
The novel tells the story of a young man, Ivo, looking back over his misspent youth, friendships made and broken and the love for a girl that that he’ll never get back. At the suggestion of his nurse, he begins to take his mind off his anxieties and being bedbound, by playing an A-Z game, listing the parts of his body and telling a little tale or memory about each. The results are a kaleidoscopic chain of recollections, which together unravel the story of Ivo’s life.
We are very proud to be hosting the provincial launch of The A-Z of You and Me and celebrating this great, new homegrown talent.
