9780007449989: The Second Life of Sally Mottram

The wonderfully entertaining and delightful new novel from bestselling author of The Fall and Rise of Reggie Perrin. Long-time Potherthwaite resident Sally Mottram cannot stand the sad decline of the northern town in which she lives. The high street bookshop is about to close, abandoned buildings line the canal, and Potherthwaite's residents seem stuck in a disheartened rut: Sally's neighbour Arnold Buss is even writing a history of the town's demise. Something has to be done about Potherthwaite, but what? And more importantly, who will do it? When an unexpected tragedy upturns Sally's life, she finds that the task falls to her. Supported by a group of local enthusiasts, including thrice-married Marigold Boyce-Willoughby, who is forever looking for love, and married couple Jill and Arnold Buss, who might both be falling for their new neighbours, Sally embarks on her ambition to bring the town back to life. But can one woman rally a whole community to save itself? David Nobbs's much-anticipated new novel is a hilarious, heartwarming tale which explores what community spirit means today, and gives us a brave new heroine to cheer, in the character of stoic Sally Mottram.
