Three Things about Elsie

Joanna Cannon


ISBN 9780008196929


There are three things you should know about Elsie.

The first thing is that she’s my best friend.

The second is that she always knows what to say to make me feel better.

And the third thing… might take a little bit more explaining.

84-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, Florence wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light; and, if the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly a man who died sixty years ago?

From the author of The Trouble with goats and sheep, this book will teach you many things, but here are three of them:

1) The fine threads of humanity will connect us all forever.

2) There is so very much more to anyone than the worst thing they have ever done.

3) Even the smallest life can leave the loudest echo.

Charming, wise and profoundly human. I lived every page of this book. Erin Kelly

Cannon specialises, beautifully, in making concrete the abstract ... a superior debut. Sunday Times

A warm, wise novel - brilliantly entertaining - that also manages to be a timely and profound take on ageing. I loved it. Kate Hamer
