About this product
- DescriptionJoe is different. Sensitive and vulnerable, he is bullied by the local kids, he lives with his aging mother and the highlight of his year is playing the back-end of a horse in the local panto. Jim has job. He also can't drive, he's never had a girlfriend and he's just been released from prison. When Jim returns home, an extraordinary friendship between the two outsiders begins. But when rumours of an unthinkable crime get out of control, Jim and Joe's loyalties are put to the test. A wonderful and utterly gripping coming-of-age story and a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Pick, Magnificent Joe is a funny and touching tale of the lengths we go to when everything we have is at stake.
- Author BiographyJames Wheatley was born in the North of England and has worked as a roofer, a labourer, a financial and business risk analyst, and a market researcher. He currently lives in Yorkshire, England, where he divides his time between writing and playing guitar. Magnificent Joe is his first novel.
