Book Description

26 Jan 2006
As instantly satisfying as a three-minute spag bol from the Tesco finest range, is it a bird? No - it's several and they're all annoyed. Is he more powerful than a locomotive? Possibly not - but he can polish off any number of Ginsters Buffet Bars. Is it faster than a speeding bullet? It happens to the best of us - even Men of Steel. Jonathan Gornall is a twenty-first century man. Divorced with a grown-up son but young enough for his looks to be largely intact, his libido is stronger than ever. Far from life being over, the adventures of Microwave Man have only just begun ...How does society view a forty-seven-year-old single man? How easy is it for him to meet women - and particularly of the younger variety? Should your son ever have to give you a lecture on your dissolute lifestyle? Is it ever too late to find real love? "Microwave Man" has at least some of the answers, in the hilariously honest and often poignant memoir of a grey-haired superhero in a new age of relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant writer 11 April 2014
By jbh
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
when Microwave Man appeared in The Times it was the highlight of the week for me. I don't understand why the column isn't continuing now or the equivalent thereof. I hope its disappearance isn't due to PCness. MM column was male perspective but also wholly and necessarily mindful of female perspective and the described balance was always wise and brilliant.and FUNNY. sense of humour in life seems somewhat threatened. The book is great Wish MM was still writing; a true superhero..

4.0 out of 5 stars My Gosh! This is selling for 1p?!!! 12 April 2010
I picked this up from a display shelf at the lobby of Cardiff's Central library, (along with Dating Amey (as a compare & contrast exercise), which was also was a tidy read).
This was fun, optimistic, at times self-effacing (at others self-promoting), saucy, silly, challenging, objectionable, apologetic, tongue in cheeky, commendable, recommendable and hilarious.
