Leonard And Hungry Paul is Rónán Hession’s hilarious and moving story of two friends who ordinarily would remain uncelebrated. It finds a value and specialness in them that is not immediately apparent and prompts the idea that maybe we could learn from the people that we overlook in life. Leonard and Hungry Paul change the world differently to the rest of us: we try and change it by effort and force; they change it by discovering the small things they can do well and offering them to others.
BBC Radio 2 Book Club Choice for March.
“A charming, warm-hearted celebration of all that is treasurable about everyday life, ‘stories of overlooked people who had simply lived their lives as best they could’. It’s witty, but the jokes, refreshingly, are never at anyone’s expense.” The Guardian
