Description

Lots of husbands forget things: they forget that their wife had an important meeting that morning; they forget to pick up the dry cleaning; some of them even forget their wedding anniversary. But Vaughan has forgotten he even has a wife. Her name, her face, their history together, everything she has ever told him, everything he has said to her - it has all gone, mysteriously wiped in one catastrophic moment of memory loss. And now he has rediscovered her - only to find out that they are getting divorced. "The Man Who Forgot His Wife" is the funny, moving and poignant story of a man who has done just that. And who will try anything to turn back the clock and have one last chance to reclaim his life.show more

Review quote

"It's a rare treat to come across a novel that is both comic and thoughtfully acute about love, and life, and stuff... Hilarious and heart-tugging, this is indeed a memorable comedy" Guardian "John O'Farrell has tapped the rich seam of domestic life in this fun new novel" Mirror "Exudes prime-time, feel-good gold... What's not to like?" Daily Mail "A brilliantly comic tale with some sharp observations on modern marriage from one of the funniest writers around" Bella "The jokes keep coming in this novel about an amnesiac family man, but the punchlines involve some serious philosophical thought" Independent on Sundayshow more
