Kicking off Mr B’s 2015 literary events is a debut author hotly tipped to be one of this year’s big rising stars.
Emma Hooper’s first novel “Etta and Otto and Russell and James” is a love story that stretches across time and war. One morning, Otto wakes to find a note from his 82-year-old wife informing him that she has embarked on an epic walk through the Canadian wilderness in order to fulfil her lifelong dream of seeing the sea. Otto’s only comfort comes from Etta’s promise that she “will try to remember to come back”. Concerned by her ambitious journey Otto’s best friend Russell, who has long been in love with Etta, heads off in pursuit of this woman on a mission. You can read Danielle’s review of the book here:
