Arthur thinks he's just another ordinary guy of 31, getting up in the morning to face another ordinary day in an ordinary town. But today there's something different about Arthur, as in the course of the day he defenestrates a photocopier and wrestles his Lynx-scented boss Ross for his job.
The hilarious and magical new novel from the bestselling author of LOOKING FOR ANDREW MCCARTHY and AMANDA'S WEDDING. Faint heart never won fair lady...Who knows how Arthur Pendleton ended up as a town planner? While his girlfriend is planning babies he can't even plan lunch. His kingdom is a small cubicle and a team of shambolic colleagues, including a dog called Sandwiches. Until Gwyneth Morgan sweeps into his world. Ice-cool and gorgeous, she offers Arthur's office the chance to escape the humdrum and win Coventry a place on the world stage: as European City of Culture. But Gwyneth secretly has her doubts about Arthur. Yes, he has deep brown eyes and a lovely smile, but can he really compete with his arch-enemy Ross, and the dashing Rafe, to seize the prize for his city - and to win her heart? As a series of strange and wonderful things start to happen, a magic is woven around Arthur's world. Office life is never going to be the same again...Nothing is quite as it seems -- and that includes Arthur. In the course of a short day he defenestrates a photocopier, wrestles his Lynx-scented boss Ross for his job, faces up to Fay -- that is he evades her questions once too often -- and is given a secret mission that will change the life of himself and his motley team (which includes a smelly dog called Sandwiches). England (well, Coventry at least) needs Arthur -- but who or what does Arthur need?
