On the same day every year, everyone around Tommy Llewellyn forgets he exists, and he grows up enduring his own universal Reset. That is until something extraordinary happens: Tommy Llewellyn falls in love . . . Unforgettable, brilliant, moving, and hopeful. Allen & Unwin is excited to publish How to be Remembered in March 2023 by talented new author and hit podcaster Michael Thompson. Brimming with ideas with a strong feel for the zeitgeist, his first novel is a heartwarming, poignant and ultimately inspiring novel about the important things in life. Advance reading copies now available.
