MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for The Stag and Hen Weekend: 'Gayle back at his best' * Sun *
'The Brummie author is particularly adept at depicting male and female characters with equal conviction . . . He affords his characters patience, and his plots all move along swimmingly on the back of his clear and comfy prose . . . The execution is pretty damn smart' Book of the Week **** * Daily Mirror *
Unique, funny and full of drama, we loved this story's twist . . . Genius! * Closer *
Innovative new book from chick-lit king Mike Gayle . . . it's hilarious * Now *
A unique story, filled with quirky off-beat characters [...] An addictive read from start to finish, it is a bumpy ride as we join Helen and Phil on their adventures as they make the most of their freedom whilst learning a few home truths about one another as they discover that the path of true love never runs smoothly. Filled to the brim with vibrant characters and one-liners, Mike Gayle brings a breath of fresh air to the chick-lit genre. * Handwritten Girl *

“Fantastic 40!”

I read Legendary Girlfriend in 1999 and gave this wonder to my other half who is 39 this year. He read it in 2 days and said it was humiliating, true and funny in all the right ways and why hadn't I given him... More
