Tom must go to Australia to persuade his friend Omai to join the Albatross Society, or kill him if he refuses. Written by Matt Haig and read by Tom Hollander.
Tom Hazard has a rare condition - he ages very, very slowly, with the result that, while he looks about 41, he is in fact over 400 years old. Over the centuries it has been a dangerous condition to have, so he has continually changed identities and moved from place to place. And he has travelled the world. Now, in a search for at least the pretence of normality, he has returned to London.
Tom must go to Australia to persuade his friend Omai to join the Albatross Society, or kill him if he refuses.
Matt Haig is the bestselling author of Reasons To Stay Alive. An award-winning writer of books for children and young adults, he has written five novels for adults.
