'Breaking up is easy. Anyone can do it. It's what happens next that's hard, as thirty-something slacker, Bill Mason, finds out after he quits both his job and his girlfriend, Georgie, in one impulsive afternoon. As the consequences of his actions catch up with him Bill finds himself caught between manhood and mousedom. Can he answer the big questions? Does he have what it takes to change, to find new love with Amberley, or will he continue to view his life through pizza-tinted glasses? Should he buy a new washing machine, or 500 pairs of cheap underpants? Is it ever OK to use a friend's toothbrush to clean dog do off your shoe? This brilliant debut is the darkly humorous tale of one man's battle to be just that: a man.' Back cover.
