- Description'William Thacker is a name you will hear a lot more often.' -- Matt Haig, author 'Envisage Brian Friel, Matt Haig and Evelyn Waugh scribbling an utterly brilliant vel together, then dive into Lingua Franca. Remarkable.' -- Caroline Smailes, author 'This is bloody brilliant.' -- Heydon Prowse, Writer of the Bafta winning The Revolution Will Be Televised There's a problem with Barrow, but it can be fixed. You just need to change the name to Birdseye. Birdseye-in-Furness...Miles Platting is pulled from the ruins of a shipwreck into a world in which one will speak to him. The founder of Lingua Franca - a naming rights agency committed to renaming every UK town after a corporate sponsor - Miles recounts the story of his quest for linguistic supremacy to anyone who'll listen. Confined to his hospital bed in a deathly quiet ward, Miles seeks to find his colleagues and reunite with his true love. But in doing so, Miles must confront his deepest held convictions and consider, what's in a name? in a world where the spoken word has been replaced with silence.
