He’s alone, as usual – though tonight is anything but.
Over the course of this evening, he will raise five toasts to the five people who have meant the most to him. Through these stories – of unspoken joy and regret, a secret tragedy kept hidden, a fierce love that never found its voice – the life of one man will powerfully and poignantly be laid bare.
‘A book to savour and pass on. An absolute joy’ Sunday Mirror’A rich and moving story, a poetic voice and unforgettable character in Maurice’ Elle
