Why do book reviewers fawn over Mil Millington while they sneer at the abundance of 'lad/chick lit' books being published? At first glance it's hard to fathom. Millington's tale doesn't stray from plots about the literary journo's pet hates, reading like a glorified letter to a problem page. Tom's a ghost writer, gets a plush commission to write the 'autobiography' of a top soap star, ends up sleeping with her, frets about his infidelity to his long-term girlfriend... and away we go. What puts him at the higher end of his peers, though, is the quality of the writing. Millington manages to go beyond lazy observations and avoids reading like a bad stand-up comedy routine in print by virtue of an engaging and entertaining writing style.
