Three years into his solo adventure in rural France, Michael Wright believes he has everything he ever wanted: a ramshackle house, several manly power tools, a cat, a grand piano and a vintage aircraft. Three unfulfilled wishes from his childhood begin to haunt him. He wants to grow one perfect potato. He wants to know how it feels to fly a Spitfire. And, more than anything, he wants to meet his soulmate. Michael Wright's heartwarming new book reveals how a solitary man can learn to accept being single Or so he thinks, until a magic alligator, a bumptious American labrador and the perils of landing a light aircraft conspire to offer a glimpse of a romance that promises to turn his whole world upside-down.

Born in Surrey in 1966, Michael Wright enjoyed an unfashionably happy education at Windlesham House and Sherborne and graduated from Edinburgh University with a degree in English Literature. He spent several years working as a theatre critic, arts columnist and literary diarist in London whilst wondering what to do when he grew up. The answer turned out to lie in rural France, where he now lives.Review:
"Even better than his first... the same scrupulous honesty, humour and self-deprecation, but with an added vital ingredient" * DAILY TELEGRAPH * "Wright wins over a begrudging reader, with writerliness and wit: his bickering hens, his beligerent cat and the emotions that this vast, lonely landscape elicits, described with a heartfelt exuberance" * INDEPENDENT *
