Product Details


“Heartwarming and hilarious.” – People
“Richard Roper charms and surprises with This Disaster Loves You….Roper writes fluid, readable prose, as charming as The County Arms…”  – Associated Press

“This delightful novel is stuffed full of surprises, not least of which how well it combines humor with a deeply moving account of a love lost and a future found.”—Liam Callanan, Paris by the Book and When in Rome
“A charming novel about the memory of a lost wife and her husband’s quest to find her. I was drawn in, delighted and surprised by this love story that has both sweetness and depth. I highly recommend escaping to the story of This Disaster Loves You.” –Miriam Parker, author of The Shortest Way Home
“There’s warmth and wit on every page of This Disaster Loves You. But beyond Richard Roper’s usual easy-going charm lies keen insight, an enthralling mystery, and an emotional ending that simply blew me away. I absolutely loved this book.”—Matthew Norman, author of Charm City Rocks
“Richard Roper writes with wit, soul, and beautiful prose.” –Good Morning America
“Richard Roper writes humour so brilliantly.” –Beth O’ Leary, author of The Flatshare and The Switch
“Roper has a light touch that keeps the reader laughing even while he gently pulls on the heartstrings…” –Kirkus

“Roper possesses a wry and formidable wit. But his real gift is the ability to infuse that humor with such immense heart that it becomes the path for an uplifting and redemptive journey.” –Steven Rowley, author of Lily and the Octopus

 ”Richard Roper uplifts the human spirit and shows us how to embrace life and hope.” —Phaedra Patrick, author of The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper
Praise for the Novels of Richard Roper

“[A] winning debut novel. .  . . Roper illuminates Andrew’s interior life to reveal not what an odd duck he is, but what odd ducks we all are — lonely, confused, misguided, bumbling and, as we learn in the book’s powerhouse ending, profoundly bereft. Roper’s unbridled compassion for his characters is the book’s greatest strength.” —New York Times Book Review
“Off-beat and winning . . . How Not to Die Alone gives resiliency and the triumph of the human spirit a good name.” —Wall Street Journal
