Longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize 2015.
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-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
'Funny and sweet, whilst also being heartbreaking and thoroughly real throughout.' TheBookBag.co.uk
