"His prose is as flexible and dangerous as a rapier...his stories go for both the head and the heart'"
Neil Gaiman

"A complex, darkly beautiful novel, filled with ominous possibilities and disturbing hints...this is English literary fiction at its best."
Joanne Harris

In his late 40s, stuck in a career and a marriage that have each lost their lustre, Chris is someone to whom life never quite kept its promise. One morning, as he is leaving for work, he hears a song on the radio: a song that transports him back to an altogether better, happier time - the early 1970s, when youth, idealism and music, especially the music of singer-songwriter Helen Leonrd, were all that really mattered. Haunted by a raw sense of loss and a growing resentment at how life has turned out, Chris - goaded on by the mysterious, elusive apparition of the 'Beagle Man' - begins a physical, spiritual and emotional quest. Revisiting old haunts and old memories, he searches for an answer to a question that has lain unanswered for nearly 30 years: what did Fate hold in store for the woman he devoted himself to so entirely all those years ago - the maddening, mercurial, mischievous Helen Leonard... Witty, elegiac, and above all, true, FINDING HELEN is a novel about the power of memory and the consequences of loss - of innocence, idealism and youth.
