Review quote

"* 'Head and shoulders above anything this side of the Atlantic... funny as hell' Zadie Smith, Telegraph * 'A boy's answer to THE GIRL'S GUIDE TO HUNTING AND FISHING... a hilarious inside-track on men, sex, love and relationships' Matt Thorne * 'Amusing, poignant tales of the city... raucously funny' Financial Times * 'Exact, clever and at times painfully accurate... It does what all good satire should and makes you wince with recognition as well as laugh out loud' Observer * 'Very funny and very sobering... Klam has an excellent eye for absurdity and his writing is infinitely subtle' Telegraph * 'Matthew Klam knows what guys really think... ruthlessly insightful' Harper's Bazaar"
