The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman – Denis Thériault

 

NEXT DATE: Wednesday 26th November, 7:30pm
OUR NEXT BOOK: The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman, by Denis Theriault, published by Hesperus Press, September 2014

‘A beautifully tragic and thought-provoking tale, The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman is a moving book by a talented new voice.

Secretly steaming open envelopes and reading the letters inside, Bilodo has found an escape from his lonely and routine life as a postman. When one day he comes across a mysterious letter containing only a single haiku, he finds himself avidly caught up in the relationship between a long-distance couple, who write to each other using only beautiful poetry. He feasts on their words, vicariously living a life for which he longs. But it will only be a matter of time before his world comes crashing down around him…’

Denis Thériault weaves a passionate and elegant tale, comic and tragic with a love story at its heart. Philosophical, rich in description and detail, it cannot fail to move.
