By Mike Gayle

The incredibly moving and uplifting new novel from the author of The Man I Think I Know.
Kerry Hayes knows exactly who she is: a single mum, a cleaner and Mariah Carey's biggest fan.
Noah Martineau thinks he knows who he is: a successful barrister, with a wife, daughter and big house in Primrose Hill.
Strangers with nothing in common.
Strangers living worlds apart.
But it wasn't always this way...and Noah and Kerry are about to discover just who they really are.
Mike Gayle was born and raised in Birmingham. After graduating from Salford University with a degree in Sociology, he moved to London to pursue a career in journalism and worked as a Features Editor and agony uncle. He has written for a variety of publications including The Sunday Times, the Guardian and Cosmopolitan.
Mike became a full time novelist in 1997 following the publication of his Sunday Times top ten bestseller My Legendary Girlfriend, which was hailed by the Independent as 'full of belly laughs and painfully acute observations,' and by The Times as 'a funny, frank account of a hopeless romantic'. Since then he has written thirteen novels including Mr Commitment, Turning Thirty and Wish You Were Here. His books have been translated into more than thirty languages.

Praise for The Man I Think I Know — -
What a beautiful, tender, unexpected story. It uplifted me a lot. It was LOVELY — Marian Keyes
That rarest of things; a moving, beautifully written novel about male friendship. The Man I Think I Know is a truthful, wise and wonderfully redemptive story about men stripped bare of the traditional ideals of masculinity - success, strength, power - learning to face up to the real world. I absolutely loved it. — Lisa Jewell
Mike Gayle is the king of touching, human stories, and this big-hearted book is his best yet
