HUNTER DAVIES ‘Love In Old Age: My Year In The Wight House’ Talk and Book Signing SOLD OUT

Join us for an evening in the company of esteemed author, journalist and all-round good egg Hunter Davies OBE. A force of nature, he and his wife Margaret Forster set the tone of the swinging sixties with their respective novels 'Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush' and 'Georgy Girl', both of which became hugely successful films. A friend of the Beatles he became their only official biographer, and his zest for life, love of people, and compulsion for writing has led to numerous books on a wide range of subjects from football to the Lake District and more recently London Parks. Tonight he'll be talking about his new book 'Love In Old Age: My Year In The Wight House'

A wryly humorous memoir from Hunter Davies, as he falls in love again in his eighties and chronicles the first year of living with his new girlfriend in their cottage on the Isle of Wight. In the summer of 2020, Hunter and Claire escaped locked-down North London for a week’s holiday on the Isle of Wight, fell in love with its sleepy charm – and ended up buying a Grade 2-listed love nest in the elegant Victorian seaside resort of Ryde.

Love in Old Age tells the story of their first twelve months on the island. It is a journey of discovery to a forgotten corner of England; an exploration of the attraction of meeting new people and new places in old age, and a celebration of flat sandy beaches. It brings together the themes of love in old age; Covid lockdown; rural escape; the anxieties of house-buying; and the history and curiosities of England’s largest and second most populous island – all bound together by Hunter Davies’s insatiable curiosity about people and places, and his irrepressible and ironic sense of humour.
