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?
"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)
"Wonderfully quirky and contemporary. Hannah's writing has the accomplished feel of a far more experienced novelist." (Guardian)

The Private Story of Someone You Know
I didn't read the print version. I really enjoyed listening to this book, though.
In terms of what I've read, it's a unique story and stands alone.
I like that the depiction of his characters is convincing . Mr. Noble has a pleasant voice, his timing is relaxed, and his narration is thoughtful. Between the excellent quality of the writing and Peter Noble's performance, the story went by very quickly and always held my attention.
"Previews in reflection: sometimes you have no choice but to skip to the end of the story"
The author has my appreciation for a good story. I feel that I got a peek inside the head of a young man who could be have been my brother, father, or any number of friends, during that transitional window of time between the irreverent immortality of youth to the realization of adulthood.
