Joe Haak washes up, naked, on a beach in Cornwall.
He’s an analyst for a city bank and fled the city in fear that he’d caused a global financial meltdown.
Then there’s a ‘flu pandemic. . .
I enjoyed this book the first time I read it. I enjoyed rereading it even more at the weekend.
This is a story about connections – human and financial.
It’s funny and sad and hopeful.
The writing is lyrical and the story is a heartwarming, and timely, modern fable.
