HELLO FRIEND WE MISSED YOU is a deeply poignant
and bleakly comic debut novel about loneliness, the ‘violent
revenge thriller’ category on Netflix, solipsism, rural
gentrification, Jack Black, and learning to exist in the least
excruciating way possible.
Its story of depression and death on the small Welsh island
of Môn, of people armed with every social media completely
failing to communicate, is far, far funnier than it has any
right to be. It’s also, ultimately, extremely moving. An
incredible debut novel from a truly unique prose stylist.
