Imagine your ex-wife is a filmstar and her face is everywhere you look; your own production company is failing; and at the age of 42 youÃ¢ÂÂre living in London on handouts from your parents. But then a surprise invitation to a millionaireÃ¢ÂÂs birthday party on a remote Pacific island provides the opportunity to cause some mayhem of your own . . .
This first novel from the prizewinning author of Alpha Male
is both moving and laugh-out-loud funny and has been raved about by both readers and critics.
