'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'**** -- Mirror '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.' -- Telegraph '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
