'One of the best books I have ever read ... It had a humour and lightness of touch that hooked me from the first page to the last.'
The Daily Telegraph

The Good Mayor is a magical story of love, fate, mistakes and ginger biscuits that is both deliciously funny and intensely moving.

Every day, in the little town of Dot in a forgotten part of the Baltic, Mayor Tibo Krovic stops off at the local café on his way to work, drinks his Viennese coffee with extra figs, leaves a bag of sweets for the owner, and goes to wait in his office for the arrival of his glorious secretary Agathe. He has worshipped Agathe from afar for years but she has always been out of reach: beautiful, lonely, but married. There is nothing that Tibo can do about his love for Mrs Stopak but, one day, when she accidentally drops her lunch into a fountain, everything changes and their lives will never be the same again. The Good Mayor is a story of love, loss, magic, friendship, wonderful food, a brass band, an Italian witch, a large lawyer, an occasional dog and a car chase at walking pace. Beautifully written, this is one of the finest debut novels in years.

'The finest, most tender novel of the 21st century ... The delicious writing takes it into a rare league. Never has anyone written a novel which makes you care so achingly much for the awkward lovers ... The Good Mayor simply makes you want to go out and fall in love with someone.'
The Sun

'An extraordinary achievement. I think it a seriously original and profoundly creative piece of literature.'
The Scotsman
