Paul Slippery is forty-nine and a half, and as Dr Esmond Pennebaker, her has been the star of a radio soap opera for the last twenty-five years. FORTYSOMETHING is his diary leading up to the day when he will first become eligible for Saga holidays. He lives with his long-suffering wife and 3 difficult teenage boys in Wimbledon, a figure of fun and pity. To compound his problems, he hears that his soap opera role is to be killed off. A cross between Helen Fielding and Sue Townsend, Fortysomething holds a funny, painful mirror up for the male fortysomething.
