Ted's Cafe, Paperback / softback Book

Ted's Cafe Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


David Tanner, ex-journalist born at the fag end of the baby boomer years, and mates, Alan, Eric and Charlie, dissect the news at Ted's Cafe. Ted's Cafe is the only place left open the men visited in their youth; a cafe founded by a Greek Cypriot and his son, who fled post-referendum, and now run by Jasiek and Danka, a Polish couple not sure of their future in a polarised Britain. David's story follows post-work life with more upheavals and surprises than he expected.

He reflects on the special relationship he has with his friends.

They talk about the past, are bewildered by the present and unsure of the future in unprecedented times of change and upheaval. Can David find love again when he discovers his wife has been keeping a secret that could end their marriage?

Will he learn to be happy in retirement and make sense of an uncertain post-Brexit future with coronavirus on the horizon?
