Waterstones Says

At once a timeless and touchingly singular story of regret and redemption, Panenka follows 50-year-old Joseph in his attempts to make amends across the void created by his past mistakes.

Signed Bookplate Edition

A standard edition is available here

His name was Joseph, but for years they had called him Panenka, a name that was his sadness and his story. Panenka has spent 25 years living with the disastrous mistakes of his past, which have made him an exile in his home town and cost him his dearest relationships.

Now aged 50, Panenka begins to rebuild an improvised family life with his estranged daughter and her seven year old son. But at night, Panenka suffers crippling headaches that he calls his Iron Mask. Faced with losing everything, he meets Esther, a woman who has come to live in the town to escape her own disappointments. Together, they find resonance in each other's experiences and learn new ways to let love into their broken lives.

“A story of forgiveness and a second chance.”

A lovely book, full of beautiful prose that is both direct and poetic at the same time.
This is a story about a man, a man with a past, a man with headaches, a man with a chance to start again.

“The perfect book to read after the Euros - a wonderful literary novel”
