On the verge of his 60th birthday. Bill Stratton's wife told him she was leaving for another man. He'd been under the impression they had a happy marriage. She assured him that since the second week of their honeymoon, she'd known she'd married the wrong person. This all came as a bit of a shock to Bill. And now, after a little soul searching, Bill Stratton, a mildly famous television newsreader who's managed to hold on to (most of) his looks, is about to discover the world of post-menopausal dating.

From AudioFile:

The multitalented Simon Brett often reads his own works--with delightful results. Here he gets into the psyche of Bill, a minor TV personality whose wife of 40 years abandons him for another man because she has always known he is Òshallow.Ó Bill reacts by diving into hormonal overdrive, punctuated by periods of depression. Brett excels at portraying BillÕs transition from faithful husband to randy divorcŽ to woman-hating barfly and, ultimately, to happiness. His ex-wife later succumbs to lung cancer, and if a description of a funeral can be hilarious, BillÕs is. Brett is no less successful playing the various women in BillÕs life--his ex-wifeÕs best friend, in particular. This is a mature coming-of-age novel, wickedly read.
