Congratulations to Alan Titchmarsh on the mass market publication of his brilliant new novel Mr Gandy’s Grand Tour.
Timothy Gandy has kept his lifetime’s ambition secret for forty years. Now, suddenly (if tragically) released from the hen-pecked tedium of his ordinary existence, he is unexpectedly free to realize his dreams.
He will embark on a Grand Tour of Europe, following in the footsteps of the aristocrats of the eighteenth century. He anticipates high art, culture and pleasant weather. He never expected to encounter new friendships – and possibly even love – along the way.
It seems that Mr Gandy has embarked on the journey of a lifetime…
