We all know someone like Thomas. The grumpy next-door-neighbour who complains to the Residents' Committee about the state of your front lawn. The man who tuts when you don't have the correct change at the checkout. The colleague who sends an all-company email when you accidentally use the last drop of milk. Thomas is very happy to be on his own, far away from other people and their problems. But beneath his cranky exterior lies a story and a sadness that is familiar to us all. And he's about to encounter a family who will change his view of the world.

"Calling Major Tom is a funny, uplifting tale of friendship and community about a man who has given up on the world... but discovers in the most unlikely way that it might not have given up on him. “A gorgeously quirky story about families, forgiveness and unexpected friendships – sheer joy.” LUCY DIAMOND, author of The Secrets Of Happiness “A book about loneliness, about bravery, about the walls we put up to protect ourselves and about how it is never too late to try to change.” KATIE MARSH, author of My Everything"
