The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society

is the title of a book by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. Published by Bloomsbury in paperback in 2009. I’d just like to say it’s FAB. Really joyous and uplifting and wonderful characters that seem so alive they almost walk off the pages. The story is set in Guernsey after the second world war and tells the story of the occupation. It is written as a series of letters.  Rarely does a book make me cry and laugh, some parts were so moving and others simply hilarious. So sad to finish reading it, I would have liked it to have gone on and on. I totally recommend it.
