Read by Ben Onwukwe.
"You're not so alone in being lonely... In weekly phone calls to his daughter in Australia, widower Hubert Bird paints a picture of the perfect retirement in London, packed with fun, friendship, and fulfillment. But it's a lie. In reality, Hubert's days are all the same, dragging on without him seeing a single soul. Until his daughter says she's coming for a visit. It's good news that turns out to be the worst news ever, news that will force him out again, into a world that had made him suffer for being a Black immigrant from Jamaica, the same world he has long since turned his back on. Now Hubert faces a seemingly impossible task : to make his real life resemble his fake life before the truth comes out. By turns a funny and moving meditation on love, race, old age, and friendship, ALL THE LONELY POPEL is an uplifting reminder of the power of ordinary people to make an extraordinary difference." -- Provided by publisher.
