How to turn forty:
1. Set yourself a personal challenge.
2. Clear wardrobe of all age inappropriate clothing.
3. Relax.

How not to turn forty:
1. Have a complete meltdown . . .

High flier Matt Beckford's sole ambition is to turn forty with his life sorted. And with a Porsche on the drive and a job that requires him to spend more time in BA's club lounge than his own lounge, it looks like things are going in the right direction. But when Matt's wife unexpectedly calls time on their marriage, a chain of events is set in motion that very quickly sees him facing forty broke, homeless and completely alone.

But all is not lost because Matt has a plan . . .

Wise, witty and wonderful . . . a triumph! Jenny Colgan

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 *
