This is a story about a Roman Catholic priest who runs his North London parish whilst harbouring an almighty secret: he doesn't believe in God. This doesn't stop him from being hugely successful, if a little unconventional in his work. He raises money by driving a London taxi and everything is going well until Sarah hops into his cab and into his life.

FATHER FRANK is a warm, funny, blisteringly good read that has the angels on its side * Tony Parsons * A dazzling first novel - funny, thoughtful and original * Stephen Fry * Refreshing * Adele Parks * A light-hearted comic novel with the feel-good factor of an Ealing comedy, and some cracking one-liners * Greg Eden, Bertrams in The Bookseller * The only novel I've ever read that tackles the fundamental issues of God, Irishness, advertising, love and cab driving all at once. Fast-moving, witty and highly digestible, it slips down like a fresh Eucharist wafer * Tim Lott * Original and comedic...very cool, very pithy * Express * Warm, tender, funny and engaging from start to finish. It's full of sharply-written dialogue, filled with characters you can take to your heart, and driven by a classic will they/won't they narrative * Scotsman *
