Theresa is desperate for a change. Forced into early retirement, fed up with babysitting her bossy daughter's obnoxious children, she sells her Highgate house and moves to the picture-perfect town of Bellevue-sur-Mer, just outside Nice. With its beautiful villas, bustling cafes and shimmering cerulean sea, the village sparkles like a diamond on the French Mediterranean coast.

This is such a wonderful collection of love poems, including many of my favourites. The way Richard reads them brings all the words and emotions to life and is peaceful/soothing to listen to on a stressful day.

What made the experience of listening to Life and Laughing the most enjoyable?

I absolutely loved this audiobook, everything that Michael talks about feels so relatable and whether you're a big fan of his or not, you can't help but respect him after listening to his story. There was a lot that made me laugh and feel hopeful to, the way he performs his story is full of life.

Well hello to you dear audiobook browser. Now I have your attention it would be rude if I didn't tell you a little about my literary feast. So, here is the thing: is it just me or does anyone else find that adulthood offers no refuge from the unexpected horrors, peculiar lack of physical coordination and sometimes unexplained nudity, that accompanied childhood and adolescence? I am proud to say I have a wealth of awkward experiences - from school days to life as an office temp - and here I offer my 18-year-old self (and I hope you, too, dear listener) some much needed caution and guidance on how to navigate life's rocky path.
