The Six Loves of Billy Binns by Richard Lumsden

The Six Loves of Billy Binns is a deeply moving and honest debut set in London against the backdrop of the changing 20th century. 

I remember my dreams but not where they start. Further back, I recall some of yesterday and the day before that.  Then everything goes into a haze. Fragments of memories come looming back like red London buses in a pea-souper. Time plays funny tricks these days.

I wait for the next memory. I wait and I wait....

At 117 years old, Billy Binns is the oldest man in Europe and he knows his time is almost up.  But Billy has a final wish: he wants to remember what love feels like one last time. As he looks back at the relationships that have shaped his flawed life - and the events that shaped the century - he recalls a life full of hope, mistakes, heartbreak and, above all, love.
