“Danny Wallace’s long-awaited debut novel is so worth the wait… a moving, funny, all-too-relatable tale of boy seeking girl, with some gripping twists and turns… an unmissable read which will have you laughing out loud and melt your heart, all at once.”
Well, then… here we go!
I have a new book out! It’s called CHARLOTTE STREET - and it’s my first novel.
It’s all about a man who one night helps a girl. Just for a second. And there’s a moment between them. But then it’s over. She disappears. But in his hands, he realises he’s still got something of hers…
Her disposable camera.
So what should he do? Develop the film? Or forget about her?
He develops the film. Of course he does. And he looks at her photos.
And that’s when he spots something very unusual indeed…
It’s a nerve-wracking time, but so far the response has been great. Working Title have bought the film rights, and so far 15 countries around the world will be publishing their own Charlotte Streets in the coming months.
I really hope you like it, if you read it. And – y’know – don’t be afraid to tell yer mates…
