Reviews

The Hope Family Calendar is the most heart-wrenching novel I've read this year...With a style similar to David Nicholls, Gayle's writing is incisive, lyrical and very beautiful...It's impossible not to fall in love with the Hope family. - Irish IndependentWise, witty and wonderful . . . a triumph! - Jenny ColganI didn't move a muscle for a whole afternoon in my eagerness to finish this book. Gayle writes with such warmth and wisdom about the human condition, at the same time creating a page-turner in this charming family tale which centres so movingly around unbearable loss. His easy, confident writing style draws you in to become another member of the Hope family and share with them the - often humorous - ups and downs of learning to live again after bereavement. Neither Tom nor Linda - the main characters - are perfect, but both are endearingly real. I highly recommend this novel - I know it will stay with me for a long time. - Hilary BoydNot just readable, fresh and witty, but sophisticated in execution . . . funny but also poignant. - Independent on Sunday on TURNING THIRTYA funny and frank account of a hopeless romantic. - The Times on MY LEGENDARY GIRLFRIENDMike Gayle has carved a whole new niche out of the male confessional novel. - Evening Standard on WISH YOU WERE HERE
