Dinner for Two
By Mike Gayle
A brilliant romantic comedy from number one bestselling author Mike Gayle, author of MY LEGENDARY GIRLFRIEND, MR COMMITMENTand TURNING THIRTY
A witty and touching novel for fans of Tony Parsons and Nick Hornby.
Thirty-two-year-old music journalist Dave Harding has got a nice house, a cushy job and in Izzy, his partner, the ideal companion for an intimate dinner for two. But when friends of Dave announce they're having a baby the biological clock he never knew existed starts ticking. Loudly.
When the magazine Dave works for folds he is forced to take the worst job in journalism - Agony Uncle for Teen Scene. Suddenly cooler-than-cool Dave is knee deep in the adolescent outpourings of his teenage readership. One letter out of thousands, however, turns his life upside down.
Thirteen-year-old Nicola O'Connell doesn't want advice about boys - she wants to know about Dave because she's convinced that Dave Harding is her dad. And she's got the facts to prove it.
