The Secret Life of Albert Entwistle by Matt Cain (Author Signed Bookplate)
Signed bookplate edition
Albert Entwistle was a postman. It was one of the few things everyone knew about him.
And it was one of the few things he was comfortable with people knowing. 64-year-old Albert Entwistle has been a postie in a quiet town in Northern England for all his life, living alone since the death of his mam 18 years ago. He keeps himself to himself.
He always has. But he's just learned he'll be forced to retire at his next birthday. With no friends and nothing to look forward to, the lonely future he faces terrifies him.
He realises it's finally time to be honest about who he is. He must learn to ask for what he wants. And he must find the courage to look for George, the man that, many years ago, he lost - but has never forgotten . . . Join Albert as he sets out to find the long-lost love of his life, and has an unforgettable and completely life-affirming adventure on the way.
'Wonderful. Written with such a good heart, filled with joy and strength and optimism... inventive and fun but most importantly, true.' Russell T. Davies
'Albert is such an endearing character - flawed, funny and awkward, but completely relatable. A wonderfully warm story that completely drew me in' Ruth Hogan
