The Man I Think I Know
By Mike Gayle
Some people just look destined for great things. And sometimes, life has other ideas.
Ever since The Incident, James DeWitt has stayed on the safe side.
He likes to know what happens next.
Danny Allen is not on the safe side. He is more past the point of no return.
But it's funny the way life is sometimes. Just when you think you know how everything is, it surprises you.
And redemption can come in the most unlikely forms . . .
Warm, witty and wise, Mike Gayle's new novel is a powerful story of male friendship and what we mean by success, reminding us of the simple courage at the heart of every human life.
Previously an Agony Uncle, Mike Gayle is a freelance journalist who has contributed to a variety of magazines including FHM, Sunday Times Style and Cosmopolitan.
