The new book from award-winning writer and comedian Mark Watson. As James boards the sleeper train to Edinburgh on a Saturday evening, he sends a message to everyone in his phone contacts list, to tell them all that he plans to end his life in the morning. James then turns his phone off – job done. But for friends, family and near-strangers across the world, receiving this shocking message is only the beginning of their journeys. What follows is a heart-breaking portrayal of how lonely one can feel in a very connected world – yet those around us are just a text away. Praise for the author: "Funny, sharply observed and unexpectedly moving" The Times "Hugely recommended. Gentle, compassionate, unusual and thought-provoking" Chris Cleave "A pitch-perfect tragicomedy of ordinary – and not so ordinary – family life" Jonathan Coe "A beautifully observed, touching and funny book of considerable power" A. L. Kennedy
