ABOUT THE BOOK
The new diary from one of literature's most beloved octogenarians.
On The Bright Side picks up where The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groenleft off, at the care home of the anarchic Old-But-Not-Dead Club where Hendrik and his friends are determined to enjoy their autumn years full of optimism. Written with his characteristic charm and humour Hendrik proves, yet again, that age is simply a number.
Hendrik Groen and his club are back with a bang in ON THE BRIGHT SIDE and boy did I miss them. Determined to live out their years to the fullest in their care home, Hendrik and his friends will obey the rules if it means grabbing a hold of life one more time because who knows when the bell will toll for anyone?
But when rumours begin to surface that the home may be getting demolished it is up to Hendrik and the Old-But-Not-Dead Club to step in and try and fix it because they have no intention of giving up without a fight.
Hilarious, poignant, and beautifully written, ON THE BRIGHT SIDE has expertly taken me back into Hendrik's world and made me fall in love with the old coot all over again. Dealing with many real-life issues throughout, Hendrik and his friends are honest but optimistic, and I love the fact that they will suck every last drop of adventure and happiness out of their lives, no matter what. In a modern world where elderly people are so often disregarded and ignored, ON THE BRIGHT SIDE highlights how much the older generation has to offer and how they should never be dismissed. A beautiful and emotional story that I hope will be read far and wide!
The indomitable Hendrik Groen has become a cultural phenomenon. Now, he and his anonymous creator, whose identity is a fiercely kept secret, are conquering the globe.
