By P-P Hartnett
All of us have wondered what it would be like to answer a personal ad. Who would you meet? Someone sweet and charming? A sociopath? Someone who simply bores you? All of the above? When Liam decides to begin answering the personal ads of London's gay papers, he is at first bemused and fascinated. After all, it is simply a way to entertain himself and pass the time.
What Liam doesn't
bargain for, however, is his growing reliance on the ads and the men who
answer them. What at first was a form of distraction is quickly becoming
an obsession, and Liam is discovering just who finds him so alluring.
Hartnett's novel is a scathing and often hilarious look at dating, first
impressions, and lost love that will forever change the way you pick up
your mail and answer your phone.
"Very nasty. Very 90s. Very much the sort of book people are going to be talking about for some time to come."
"It's a first, this book: funny, disgusting, real, fascinating. The people in it are every bit as bad as the writing is good. Let's face it, it's time you read a book like this."
