A Love Story...
"Such a powerful, melodic, urgent and honest story of suffering, love and survival I have never quite encountered before. This is a jewel of a tale - a vital and raw piece of the true human experience - and it needs to never be forgotten. I am honored to have read it, and will pass it along to many others." - Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love.
In The Field
Published April 2017
Worlds apart, two mothers have lost their sons; only together can their boys survive...
Lawyer, Boxer, Surfer, Scribe...
Alex Wade's third book and first novel comes out in June 2016 to much anticipation... the author is a night-lawyer on the newspapers traditionally associated with Fleet Street. But he's also a boxer, a surfer, and journalist with a unique inside knowledge of journalism, newspapers and their arcane morals, semi-rules and laws. He's written about boxing and surfing, and now he writes about his profession in Flack's Last Shift. Having read it, you'll think twice about how your next newspaper ended up on the newsstand.
