UK customers revisit The Snow Goose by Paul Gallico
Lots of interest in The Snow Goose by Paul Gallico from our AbeBooks.co.uk customers. This classic novella is currently the most searched for book on our UK site thanks to the BBC Radio 4 adaptation on Sunday. Last year, the listeners to the BBC’s Open Book programme voted The Snow Goose to be the book they felt most deserved to be re-read and reinstated onto our bookshelves.
Gallico (1897-1976) is best remembered for The Snow Goose but he also wrote The Poseidon Adventure. The Snow Goose was first published in 1940 in the Saturday Evening Post and then published in a book-format in April 1941. The Snow Goose is about friendship and love. It tells the story of Philip Rhayader, a solitary artist living in an abandoned lighthouse, and a young girl, Fritha.
