Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
Mike Gayle creates real, ordinary people with real ordinary lives who are so real and so believable that you mourn for them from the moment you finish reading. * Lisa Jewell * Packed with drama, friendship, love and tragedy, this is a brilliant touching tale of what happens when real life catches up with us * Heat * Moving and powerful * Daily Mirror * What I love about Mike Gayle is the way he seamlessly blends humour and sensitivity - his books are always rip-roaringly funny, yet so humane too. * Freya North * Gayle (rather bravely) often writes in the first person as a female character, but he hits the right notes, and the result is a warm and unforced comedy... Gayle's humour is human and he has a fine eye for the quiet pain of unrequited love. * Daily Telegraph *
