From My Legendary Girlfriend to Turning Forty, Mike Gayle´s bestselling novels have taken his millions of readers through many key times for the modern man - friendship, courtship, stag weekends, marriage, work, holidays, significant birthdays - but SEEING OTHER PEOPLE is perhaps his most heart-warming, heart-stopping, heartbreaking novel yet.
Father of two Joe Clarke, is about seventy-eight per cent sure he´s just had an affair. After all that is the hopelessly attractive office intern in bed next to him, isn´t it? But then again if he did have an affair why can´t he remember anything at all about the night in question? Mortified by his mistake, Joe vows to be a better man. But when his adored wife Penny puts two and two together and leaves him, things start to take a turn for the decidedly strange.
Joe is told for a fact that he DIDN´T have an affair after all.
He just thinks he did.
Which is great news . . . or at least it would be if the person who´d just delivered it wasn´t the crisp-eating, overly perfumed and mean-spirited GHOST of his least favourite ex-girlfriend . . .
SEEING OTHER PEOPLE is a hilarious and bittersweet novel about love, parenthood and fidelity, and how easy it is to get lost on the way to your own happy ending.
