The Restoration of Otto Laird Synopsis

Otto Laird is outraged ...The peaceful, if slightly bemused, existence of this elderly, retired architect is rudely interrupted when he learns that his most significant and revolutionary building, Marlowe House, a 1960s tower block council estate in south London is to be demolished. Determined to do everything in his power to save the building, Otto returns to London for the first time in twenty-five years. As he explores his past, ponders his present and considers the future -- for himself and his building -- Otto embarks on a most remarkable journey, one that will change everything he ever thought he knew about himself and those closest to him.

The Restoration of Otto Laird Press Reviews

'Emotional, poignant and touching. It's a book we can all relate to, about love, regret and moving on. An amazing read' Deborah Rodriguez, author of The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul

 

'I raced through this book in one day. The eccentric and engaging character of the ageing Otto had me gripped from the start. Well-written and moving, this is a novel to savour.' Hilary Boyd, author of Thursdays in the Park
