Publisher Description

From the highly-acclaimed author of SMALL PLEASURES - winner of the 2022 British Book Awards.

On the brink of forty, newly single with a failed business, Philip thought he had reached an all-time low. . .

It only needed a discarded chip on a South London street to lay him literally flat. So, bedbound and bored, Philip naturally starts to write the story of his life.

But between the mundane catalogue of seaside holidays and bodged DIY, broken relationships and unspoken truths, more surprises are revealed - both comic and touching - than Philip or his family ever bargained for. Maybe there will even be a happy ending.
