Description:
A successful sitcom writer with plenty of money, a stable marriage, a platonic mistress and a flashy car, Laurence 'Tubby' Passmore has more reason than most to be happy. Yet neither physiotherapy nor aromatherapy, cognitive-behaviour therapy or acupuncture can cure his puzzling knee pain or his equally inexplicable mid-life angst.

Review:
A wry parable of mid-life crisis from the author of Nice Work and Paradise News. His main character is Laurence 'Tubby' Passmore, author of TV sitcoms, owner of a flat in London, a house in Rummidge, a first-class car and an understanding mistress. But still Tubby isn't happy. His quest for contentment leads him, via Soren Kierkegaard and the police force, to bedrooms in Tenerife and Beverly Hills. This is Lodge at his best, blending pathos and humour with skill, encouraging his readers to identify with the most disreputable behaviour. (Kirkus UK)

What the papers say:
Excellent of course.
