Description
Information
'Seriously uplifting, hilarious. A funny, moving, acutely observed story about family and loss. A pleasurable, satisfying gem of a novel' Scotland on Sunday

'A wonderful book' Jonathan Coe

Frank Allcroft, a regional TV news presenter, has just had a ratings boost. His puns, a website declares, make him 'the unfunniest man on God's Earth'. Mortified colleagues wonder how he stands being a public joke.

But Frank doesn't mind. As long as Andrea and Mo, his wife and eight-year-old daughter, are happy – who gives a stuff what others think? Besides, Frank has a couple of other matters on his mind.

He has taken to investigating the death of Phil, his (actually quite funny) predecessor, killed in a mysterious hit and run six months ago. Also, he's telling Mo about the architect grandfather she never met by taking her to see vanished and soon-to-be-vanished buildings.

Because Frank knows that it is between what we see and what we can't, what has gone and what's left behind, that the answers lie . . .

Very funny, warm and moving, The News Where You Are is a story of family, friendship and trying to reconnect with the past before it is gone.

'Under the wisecracking surface . . . surprisingly profound' The Times

'A flow of laugh-out-loud satire' Independent on Sunday

'Awesomely talented' Tatler
