Love in the Late Edition is a story about a man who retires with his wife to an idyllic retirement community in California but is very soon left tragically alone. Alistair Brown is originally from Australia but has spent decades working in America, once as the editor of the local newspaper nearby, which is why he and his wife have come back to beautiful Carmelito to retire. Now, suddenly blindsided by fate, Alistair knows he must somehow find a new purpose in his life, which at first he struggles to do, often comically. Written in the style of an autobiography, Alistair's story is both funny and sad. It is full of compelling characters and memorable incidents in a world unto itself with its own attitudes and customs, a world that becomes threatened and in need of saving. Alistair, who finds fulfilment by using his old journalistic talents as editor of the community's newsletter, is able to help sound the alarm. Then something else surprising and good happens, when he least expects it. Love in the Late Edition is part love story, part homage to the newspaper business, part ode to friendship. But, most of all, it is an affirmation that while there is life there is hope, and that even in the evening of our lives we can find happiness with a fresh reason for living.
