For our book club meeting in February, we read the One Dublin One Book choice for 2021, Leonard and Hungry Paul by Ronan Hession. A tender and unusual story of male friendship, the book club thought this book celebrated the quieter people and ordinary moments in life, thereby making it the perfect lockdown read. Highly recommended.
LEONARD AND HUNGRY PAUL is the story of two friends who ordinarily would remain uncelebrated. It finds a value and specialness in them that is not immediately apparent and prompts the idea that maybe we could learn from the people that we overlook in life. Leonard and Hungry Paul change the world differently to the rest of us: we try and change it by effort and force; they change it by discovering the small things they can do well and offering them to others.
