A feel-good romantic epic with a life-affirming moral ‘message’, One Big Damn Puzzler is a book that might have been written with a future starring role for Tom Hanks in mind. With its blend of knockabout humour and light social comment, its larger-than-life supporting cast and its dependable if insipid lead, John Harding’s mammoth new novel at times resembles a treatment for the Hollywood romcom it will surely become.
