A COMIC MASTERPIECE BY BELOVED BESTSELLER DAVID NICHOLLS
A scintillating comedy of ambition, celebrity, jealousy and love
'Funniest book of the year'
For Josh Harper, being in show-business means everything he ever wanted: money, fame, a beautiful wife and a lead role on the London stage.
For Stephen C. McQueen, it means being stuck with an unfortunate name, a hopeless agent and a job as understudy to Josh Harper, the 12th Sexiest Man in the World.
When Stephen falls in love with Josh's clever, funny wife, Nora, things get even more difficult. But might there yet be a way for Stephen to get his big break?
ONE OF BRITAIN'S MOST ACCLAIMED WRITERS
'One of the most astute chroniclers of England as it is now'
'An uncanny ability to make us laugh out loud, but also care passionately about his characters'
'Nicholls writes with such tender precision about love'
'No one else writes novels that are both relatable and revelatory in the way he does'
