Patrick Gale’s LITTLE BITS OF BABY is a charming, witty novel of love, possibility and life in crisis – ‘Richly comic, affectionate and perceptive’ Mail on Sunday

Eight years ago, Robin fled from his family, friends, and entire life, to suffer a complete breakdown in an island monastery. Now he’s reconnecting with those he left behind: his mother and father, with their own small secrets, and Jake and Candida, both of whom were impossibly close to Robin when he disappeared. But while the people he abandoned have missed him, Robin finds that everything has changed. He alone can decide what he will do in this new world of resentment, possibility and triumphant love.

Reviews

Richly comic, affectionate and perceptive
Mail on Sunday
[Gale] shows the diversity of passionate behavior, sometimes hilarious, sometimes threatening, but always skillfully contained within a comedy of contemporary manners
The Times
Comic, touching, astringent and immensely accomplished. A real treat
