The Peculiar Life of a Lonely Postman Paperback / softback


*Selected for Simon Mayo's BBC Radio 2 Book Club*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 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.
