*** Featured on BBC Radio 2 Book Club on 22nd April 2014 *** Harry August is on his deathbed. Again. No matter what he does or the decisions he makes, when death comes, Harry always returns to where he began, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen times before. Nothing ever changes. Until now. As Harry nears the end of his eleventh life, a little girl appears at his bedside. 'I nearly missed you, Doctor August,' she says. 'I need to send a message.' This is the story of what Harry does next, and what he did before, and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow.

        Utterly readable, utterly believable and compelling . . . one of the fiction highlights of the decade - Judy Finnigan, Richard and Judy Book Club

        Beautiful and gripping - GUARDIAN

        The writing is impeccable . . Plus Harry is a fascinating main character . . . And if his next 15 lives are half as eventful, we look forward to the sequel - HEAT

        An astonishing re-invention of the time-travel narrative. Bold, magical and masterful - M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS

        I don't say this lightly but The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August is one of the top ten books I've ever read - James Dashner, bestselling author of THE MAZE RUNNER

        A masterful literary thriller - io9
