Oconomowaukee's Books & Company and Milwaukee's Boswell present a special afternoon Readings from Oconomowaukee event, featuring Mike Gayle, the author of All the Lonely People.
it's the story of Hubert Bird, an 84-year old Jamaican immigrant in London who prepares to rediscover a world that he'd previously turned his back on. Inspired by the lives of Gayle's own parents, All the Lonely People tackles racism and immigration head on, as well as the loneliness that comes with old age.
From Daniel's recommendation: "This story, equal parts sad, happy, and funny, also shines a light on the indignities that a Jamaican immigrant would have suffered in London. Hubert’s spirit, despite numerous incidents that would break another person, is what keeps him going, the same spirit that makes All the Lonely People compelling reading."
Gayle is the author of 13 novels and his work has been translated into 30 languages. And now here's your turn to discover him.
