Friendships might just be the greatest love affairs of our lives . . .

In 2018 poet and author Michael Pedersen lost a cherished friend, Scott Hutchison, soon after their collective voyage into the landscape of the Scottish Highlands. Just weeks later, Michael began to write to him. As he confronts the bewildering process of grief, what starts as a love letter to one magical, coruscating human soon becomes a paean to all the gorgeous male friendships that have transformed his life.

‘Tender, funny . . . lifted my spirits in the way Ali Smith does.’ VAL McDERMID

‘Dazzling . . . uncommonly romantic, irreverent and at times laugh out loud funny. A delight.’ SHIRLEY MANSON

‘Beautiful . . . send it to every friend you’ve ever loved.’ CHARLOTTE CHURCH
