The Letters of Ivor Punch

Downloadable audio file
Imagine an island, a place separated from the mainland by choppy seas. A place of myths and faith, where a Headless Horseman is said to stalk the woods but where the kirk is always full. Imagine a community which held its own against Darwin but which can't hold on to its own. Prepare to meet a pioneering female travel writer, two fatherless boys, and a man who, quite simply, fell from the sky. And, at the centre of it all, the figure who links the past to the present - the irrepressible, unforgettable former Sergeant Punch. Ivor Punch will not be taking his secrets to the grave. He's going to share them: with a departed relative, with President Obama and, especially, with you. Hilarious and heartfelt, rowdy and true, THE LETTERS OF IVOR PUNCH is a novel about fathers and sons, secrets and lies and how, sometimes, you have to leave home to know what home is.
