“The Afterlife of Walter Augustus is wonderfully written and I thoroughly enjoyed this creative read.” – Lorraine Kelly

Perfect for fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and A Man Called Ove, this emotional and heart-warming tale will have you laughing and crying until the very end.

Walter Augustus is dead. After decades stuck in the Interim he is ready to move on and be with his family. But just as the end is tantalisingly close, bad luck and a few rash decisions threaten to see him trapped for all eternity.

Letty is not dead. Letty Ferguson is a middle-aged shoe saleswoman who leads a wholly unextraordinary life; that is until she takes possession of an unassuming poetry anthology and the world takes on a rather more extraordinary dimension.

As Letty and Walter’s worlds become more and more intertwined, how far will Walter go to cut his ties with the living for good?
