Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for HEARTBREAK HOTEL by Deborah Moggach.

"Nobody writes as well about the stirrings of elderly loins. This extremely funny novel is set in rural Wales, in the sublime company of Russell 'Buffy' Buffery. The joy lies in the delightful characters and the wry, pin-sharp commentary on their shenanigans. Bliss."
- The Times

"This is a comic performance so footsure it almost tap-dances."
- Sunday Times (UK)

"There's all the warmth and the humour you'd expect from Moggach, as well as moments of beautifully expressed insight into her lonely hearts."
- Observer

"An addictive and funny novel: if there is a book more like a Richard Curtis film, you'd be hard-pressed to find it.'
- Psychologies (UK)

"Just as exuberant and hilarious as The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" (Good Housekeeping )

Amazon.com review:

"At Myrtle House, the twin beds have never been so busy. The irrepressible Russell 'Buffy' Buffery has upped sticks from London and moved to a decrepit B&B in rural Wales. He needs to fill the beds, and what better way than with 'Courses for Divorces', his new money-making wheeze. Those checking in include: Harold, whose wife has run off with a younger woman; Amy, who's been unexpectedly dumped by her (not-so) weedy boyfriend and Andy, the hypochondriac postman whose girlfriend is much too much for him to handle. Under Buffy's tutelage, these casualties of the marriage-go-round find themselves re-learning all those skills never thought they'd need again, and a whole lot more besides..."
