All The Lonely People - Mike Gayle

From the bestselling author of The Man I Think I Know comes this heart-warming novel of family, friendship and human connection.

In phone calls to his daughter in Australia, widower Hubert Bird paints a picture of the perfect retirement, packed with fun and friendship. But Hubert Bird is lying.

Something has made him turn his back on people, and he hardly sees a soul. So when his daughter announces she's coming to visit, Hubert faces a race against time: to make his real life resemble his fake life before he's found out. Along the way Hubert renews a cherished friendship, is given a second chance at love and even joins an audacious community scheme.

But with the secret of his earlier isolation lurking in the shadows, is he destines to always be one of the lonely people?
