World Book Night: Getting rid of Matthew

Grab your free copy on Wednesday 23rd April, from 10am in the StartUp Lounge.

What to do if Matthew, your secret lover of the past four years, finally decides to leave his wife Sophie and their two daughters and move into your flat, just when you’re thinking that you might not want him anymore .

PLAN A: Stop shaving your armpits. And your bikini line. Tell him you have a moustache that you wax every six weeks Stop having sex with him. Pick holes in the way he dresses. Don’t brush your teeth. Or your hair. Or pluck out the stray hag-whisker that grows out of your chin. Buy incontinence pads and leave them lying around

PLAN B: Accidentally on purpose bump into his wife Sophie Give yourself a fake name and identity. Befriend Sophie. Actually begin to really like Sophie. Snog Matthew’s son (who’s the same age as you by the way. You’re not a paedophile) Buy a cat and give it a fake name and identity. Befriend Matthew’s children. Unsuccessfully Watch your whole plan go absolutely horribly wrong.

Review: An hilarious modern comedy, refreshingly dark and yet wonderfully warm. You can’t help liking Helen, however awful she is at times and feeling for her (and laughing at her) as her plans go squirmingly wrong. Perfect for twenty and thirty somethings, especially those who’ve loved Jane Fallon’s TV dramas.
