Description

Amazon Best Books of the Month, July 2012: Harold Fry--retired sales rep, beleaguered husband, passive observer of his
own life--decides one morning to walk 600 miles across England to save an old friend. It might not work, mind you, but
that's hardly the point. In playwright Rachel Joyce's pitch-perfect first novel, Harold wins us over with his classic
antiheroism. Setting off on the long journey, he wears the wrong jacket, doesn't have a toothbrush, and leaves his phone
at home--in short, he is wholly, endearingly unprepared. But as he travels, Harold finally has time to reflect on his
failings as a husband, father, and friend, and this helps him become someone we (and, more important, his wife Maureen)
can respect. After walking for a while in Harold Fry's very human shoes, you might find that your own fit a bit better.
--Mia Lipman
