Charlotte Street (eBook)
“Unmissable...will have you laughing out loud and melt your heart, all at once.”
Danny Wallace is a British writer, producer, and award-winning journalist whom GQ (UK) calls, “One of Britain’s great writing talents.” The man who gave us Yes Man (basis for the Hollywood motion picture starring Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel) makes a grand foray into fiction with Charlotte Street, a sweet and sharp romantic comedy about finding love, growing up, and making your own fate that fans of the novels of Nick Hornby and David Nicholls are going to adore. With this charming, slightly twisted comic novel about an endearing loser’s convoluted plot to turn a brief chance meeting into a once-in-a-lifetime love affair, Wallace proves he has ample heart to go along with the humor.

Praise for Charlotte Street…
“Delightful . . . witty . . . The combination of Dickensian plot twists and Hornbyesque humor and hope makes for a thoroughly entertaining read.”
“Though lighthearted in tone, [CHARLOTTE STREET] speaks to a nostalgia for a time when photographs were authentic and unsullied by smartphone filters . . . Readers who enjoy the work of Nick Hornby or Stephen Chbosky will enjoy this.”
“An amusing tale of an innocuous stalker.”
“Unmissable... will have you laughing out loud and melt your heart, all at once.”
“One of Britain’s great writing talents.”
