When Joe Clarke writes a feature for his newspaper on the guys called the Divorced Dads' Club, he doesn't think he'll ever see this sorry bunch of losers again. Why would he? He's happily married to Penny, his university sweetheart, and he is the father of two lovely children that they both dote upon. Joe has never strayed from his marriage vows . . . until one drunken night which leaves his life in ruins, and Penny showing him the door. He is still in love with Penny and still crazy about his kids, who can't understand why their lives have been turned upside down, but Joe knows he deserves to be cast out into the world of bedsits and baked beans. And it soon becomes clear that as far as Penny is concerned, there is no way back. Joe feels totally alone. And then he bumps into none other than Van, lead singer of West London's most famous Van Halen tribute band, and leading light of the Divorced Dads' Club. Could this motley crew of fathers, all in some way separated from their children but determined to support each other, help Joe get back together with Penny and the kids? Not if his first meeting with Penny and her new boyfriend is anything to go by . . . Funny, heart-wrenching, and totally page-turning, this book is a rollercoaster ride of emotion. By its end, Joe Clarke will be a very different person.

From My Legendary Girlfriend to Turning Forty, Mike Gayle s bestselling novels have taken his millions of readers through many key times for the modern man - friendship, courtship, stag weekends, marriage, work, holidays, significant birthdays - but SEEING OTHER PEOPLE is perhaps his most heart-warming, heart-stopping, heartbreaking novel yet. Father of two Joe Clarke, is about seventy-eight per cent sure he s just had an affair. After all that is the hopelessly attractive office intern in bed next to him, isn t it? But then again if he did have an affair why can t he remember anything at all about the night in question? Mortified by his mistake, Joe vows to be a better man. But when his adored wife Penny puts two and two together and leaves him, things start to take a turn for the decidedly strange. Joe is told for a fact that he DIDN T have an affair after all. He just thinks he did. Which is great news .or at least it would be if the person who d just delivered it wasn t the crisp-eating, overly perfumed and mean-spirited GHOST of his least favourite ex-girlfriend .S EEING OTHER PEOPLE is a hilarious and bittersweet novel about love, parenthood and fidelity, and how easy it is to get lost on the way to your own happy ending.
