9780099506935: All Shall Be Well; And All Shall Be Well; And All Manner of Things Shall Be Well

Meet Burt Hecker, aka Eckbert Attquiet, a 63-year-old medieval re-enactor with a momentous nose, who dresses in tunics and drinks too much home-made mead. His treasured wife Kitty has died and their strange and beautiful relationship is now the stuff of history; he has sold all of his possessions and bought a one-way ticket to Europe, bent on rescuing his beloved son Tristan from the 'evil' city of Prague. If only he knew that his son doesn't want to be rescued, or found.

This is the story of Burt's painful, hilarious and doomed attempts to come to terms with his own past.

Review:

"Bursting with humour and weighted with sadness" ( Financial Times)

"Vibrant, original, at times hilarious...reminiscent of Philip Roth or Jonathan Franzen (or The Royal Tenenbaums, for that matter)" ( New Statesman)

"Wodicka has crafted an eccentric tale full of humour and compassion" ( Guardian)

"A boisterous debut...a genuinely moving narrative - applause is justified" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Packed with wit, humour and wise epigrammatic observations on life" ( Big Issue)

From the Publisher:

Dazzlingly inventive and utterly original, All Shall Be
Well... is a surprise and a delight.
