Hello Friend We Missed You
Richard Owain Roberts
HELLO FRIEND WE MISSED YOU is a deeply poignant and bleakly comic debut novel about loneliness, the ‘violent revenge thriller’ category on Netflix, solipsism, rural gentrification, Jack Black, and learning to exist in the least excruciating way possible. Its story of depression and death on the small Welsh island of Mon, of people armed with every social media completely failing to communicate, is far, far funnier than it has any right to be. It’s also, ultimately, extremely moving. An incredible debut novel from a truly unique prose stylist.
'Richard Owain Roberts is one of the most distinctive and exciting voice in literature today. In Hello Friend We Missed You we get to see that not only is he a writer of exceptional stylistic talent but one who manages to bring characters and places into vibrant life. This is an undeniably cool book but it also has a great deal of soul. He could be the voice of our generation, I hope people are reading.' - Amy Lloyd, One More Lie (Penguin)
