MATT HAIG
How to Stop Time
Matt Haig is the number one bestselling
author of
Reasons to Stay Alive
and
five highly acclaimed novels for adults,
including
The Radleys
and
The Humans
.
The film rights to his new book,
How
to Stop Time
have already been optioned
SunnyMarch/StudioCanal, with Benedict
Cumberbatch attached to star.
Tom Hazard has a dangerous secret.
He may look like an ordinary 41-year-old,
but the truth is, he suffers from a rare
condition, and has been alive for centuries.
From Elizabethan England to Jazz-Age
Paris, Tom has seen a lot. All he craves
now is an ordinary life. The only thing he
must not do is fall in love.
With Matt’s last book staying in
the top ten for almost a year, and his
rapidly growing fanbase, this Wimbledon
BookFest closing event is a must-see.
