From the author of the 2 million+ copy, worldwide bestseller, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, an exquisite, funny and heartrending parallel story.
When Queenie Hennessy discovers that Harold Fry is walking the length of England to save her, and all she has to do is wait, she is shocked. Her note to him had explained she was dying from cancer. How can she wait?
A new volunteer at the hospice suggests that Queenie should write a second letter; only this time she must tell Harold the truth.
Composing this letter, the volunteer promises, will ensure Queenie hangs on. It will also atone for the secrets of the past. As the volunteer points out, 'It isn't Harold who is saving you.
It is you, saving Harold Fry.'
This is that letter. A letter that was never sent.
Told in simple, emotionally-honest prose, with a mischievous bite, this is a novella about a woman who falls in love but chooses not to claim it.
It is about friendship and kindness as well as the small victories that pass unrecorded. It is about the truth and the significance - the gentle heroism - of a life lived alone.
Queenie thought her first letter would be the end of the story. She was wrong.
It was just the beginning...

Описание: For over four decades The Hennessy Literary Awards have been a linchpin for successive generations of Irish writers to announce their arrival on the national and international stage. The awards are presented for work published on the famous New Irish Writing page, which has found a home in successive national Irish newspapers. Because this page only features work by writers yet to publish in book form, it invariably captures the excitement of an emerging generation on the cusp of acclaim. This anthology features a selection of twenty-five of the finest stories shortlisted for the Hennessy Awards over the past decade. Some writers have since gained wide recognition and some are still in the process of making their voices heard. These are the early - and, very often, the first - stories written by an exciting new wave of writers: an extraordinary, vibrant and dynamic explosion of talent that is changing the face of Irish fiction. The Hennessy Book of Irish Fiction 2005-2015 is the third in a series of anthologies, edited once a decade by Dermot Bolger and Ciaran Carty, to capture each new generation of Irish writers as they emerge in print for the first time. As Colum McCann wrote in his introduction to the second anthology, The New Hennessy Book of Irish Fiction (2005), these 'are often the first stories, or the newly struck note, of a voice that will go to new horizons. Just being shortlisted for the award gives a needle-shot of confidence and a sense of breadth early in a writer's career.' Joseph O'Connor spoke for many writers in his introduction to the first anthology, The Hennessy Book of Irish Fiction, in 1995 when he recalled: 'The truth was that I was on the verge of giving up writing completely when my first story appeared on the page ... Long may the New Irish Writing page and the Hennessy Awards continue to celebrate the power of the short story to speak for our time, the miraculous, fundamental, moral importance of the words.'

Описание: From the bestselling author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry comesan exquisite love story about Queenie Hennessy, the remarkable friend who inspired Harold's cross-country journey.
A runaway international bestseller, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry followed its unassuming hero on an incredible journey as he traveled the length of England on foot--a journey spurred by a simple letter from his old friend Queenie Hennessy, writing from a hospice to say goodbye. Harold believed that as long as he kept walking, Queenie would live. What he didn't know was that his decision to walk had caused her both alarm and fear. How could she wait? What would she say? Forced to confront the past, Queenie realizes she must write again. In this poignant parallel story to Harold's saga, acclaimed author Rachel Joyce brings Queenie Hennessy's voice into sharp focus. Setting pen to paper, Queenie makes a journey of her own, a journey that is even bigger than Harold's; one word after another, she promises to confess long-buried truths--about her modest childhood, her studies at Oxford, the heartbreak that brought her to Kingsbridge and to loving Harold, her friendship with his son, the solace she has found in a garden by the sea. And, finally, the devastating secret she has kept from Harold for all these years. A wise, tender, layered novel that gathers tremendous emotional force, The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy underscores the resilience of the human spirit, beautifully illuminating the small yet pivotal moments that can change a person's life. Praise for The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy "In the end, this lovely book is full of joy. Much more than the story of a woman's enduring love for an ordinary, flawed man, it's an ode to messy, imperfect, glorious, unsung humanity. . . . Queenie's] love song is for us. Thank you, Rachel Joyce."--The Washington Post "Destined to change your world. One can't help but see life, and the end of it, differently after experiencing this novel. Full of wisdom and heart, it will overwhelm its readers with a deep sensitivity."--Bookreporter " A] beguiling follow-up . . . In telling Queenie's side of the story, Joyce accomplishes the rare feat of endowing her continuing narrative with as much pathos and warmth, wisdom and poignancy as her debut. Harold was beloved by millions; Queenie will be, too."--Booklist (starred review)
"Delightful and dark . . . But Joyce is so deft that when the book is over and you close the cover, the darkness fades. What sticks with you is the light of Queenie's unwavering love."--Minneapolis Star Tribune " A] deeply affecting novel . . . Culminating in a shattering revelation, Queenie's] tale is funny, sad, hopeful: She's bound for death, but full of life."--People "Joyce's writing at moments has a simplicity that sings. She captures hope best of all."--The Guardian "Joyce has a wonderfully evocative turn of phrase and like her other books this is a delightful read. . . . Uplifting and moving."--Daily Express "Joyce nicely calls the book a companion rather than a sequel. But The Love Song is bolder than a retread of the same material from another angle. . . . After two such involving novels, readers are bound to wish for a third."--The Telegraph " Joyce] manages to both add depth to an already strong work and build something new and beautiful upon it."--The A.V. ClubFrom the Hardcover edition.

Описание: The interlocking themes of Establishment and Meritocracy are a crucial part of the intellectual compost that made Hennessy`s generation of postwar Britons. The Establishment and the concept of a growing and eventually self-propelling meritocracy were always at odds, and the policies that brought it about dramatically altered British society.
