Magnificent Joe

by James Wheatley
£8.99   paperback  Oneworld Publications (2014)

Magnificent Joe by James Wheatley What Joe needs is a friend. What Jim needs is a fresh start.
 
Living in a former pit village in the North of England, Joe's learning difficulties have left him isolated, his only contact with the community playing the back-end of the horse in the local panto. Until Jim, another of life's outsiders for a whole different set of reasons, comes home. So begins an unlikely friendship. Jim and Joe offer one another loyalty and camaraderie, simple but magnificent qualities that give Jim that most elusive thing - hope - as he rebuilds his life. But when rumours of an unthinkable crime get out of control, Jim's loyalty is put to the test, with heartbreaking consequences.
 
Funny, bittersweet and unforgettable, Magnificent Joe is a tale of devastation, loss and the redemptive power of one extraordinary friendship.
