"When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, he has no idea that he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other. He has no hiking boots or map, let alone a compass, waterproof or mobile phone. All he knows is that he must keep walking. To save someone else's life. 'The odyssey of a simple man, original, subtle and touching'. - Claire Tomalin From the moment I met Harold Fry, I didn't want to leave him. Impossible to put down.' - Erica Wagner, The Times"

The critically acclaimed, Sunday Times and international bestseller, long-listed for the Man Booker Prize 2012: 'A magical, moving and uplifting tale about a man's journey across England and into his own heart.' - Deborah Moggach.


Longlisted for Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2012.


'Wonderful' -- Deborah Orr Guardian 'At times almost unbearably moving.' --Sunday Times 'A brilliant and charming novel: full of comic panache yet acute and poignant.' --Spectator 'A gorgeously poignant novel of hope and transformation.' --Oprah Magazine 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry is a funny book, a wise book, a charming book - but never cloying. It's a book with a savage twist, and yet never seems manipulative. Perhaps because Harold himself is just wonderful...This book may follow a pattern set by another radio dramatist-turned-novelist, David Nicholls, whose One Day has now sold more than a million copies and been made into a successful film simply because one reader said to another 'I love this book' over and over again. So I'm telling you now: I love this book.' -- Erica Wagner The Times
