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.
A must buy, must read.
I love reading Mike Gayle novels. The last one I read was Wish You Were Here, which I highly recommend. Mike Gayle’s new novel is told man’s perspective. Seeing Other People is a brilliant novel that makes you hard to take your eyes off the page. Not a word is wasted on any page. There is an utter thrill of discovering what really happens to Joe Clarke. Happy married, father of two Joe wakes up beside a young woman from his work. He is sure that he has been unfaithful to the wife he loves, but Joe can not remember having an affair with this young woman. But when his ex girlfriend dies Joe’s life begins to take a strange encounter. This story is cracking stuff that I recommend it with high-flying colours.
