Waterstones Says

A celebration of the minutiae of everyday life and the idle dreams and small victories of ordinary people, Leonard and Hungry Paul crafts perfectly formed mini-dramas out of the most mundane situations. Strikingly original and, in its devotion to the conventional, highly unconventional in tone, Hession’s beautifully observed novel is an understated triumph.  

A BBC Radio 2 Book Club Choice

Leonard and Hungry Paul is the story of two friends who ordinarily would remain uncelebrated. It finds a value and specialness in them that is not immediately apparent and prompts the idea that maybe we could learn from the people that we overlook in life.

Leonard and Hungry Paul change the world differently to the rest of us: we try and change it by effort and force; they change it by discovering the small things they can do well and offering them to others.
