Bravo Burston!, 17 May 2009
It reminded me of a 1940s Hollywood rom com placed in a contemporary setting. The formation of the couple (can't say anymore or I'll give it away) the twists and turns and very real family issues. The humour yet also the serious, really beautiful moments; Phil driving Luke to meet Hazel, the epilogue, which is just lovely - it's grounded and real and I am sure strikes a chord with many men and women. It never shies away from taking the piss out of the characters, all people we know only too well. It examines slightly more mature gay people and their lives before and after coming out - it's a subject which is mostly done with great seriousness and often full of apology. But not here. It's such a good idea, a great read, and written with a lightness of touch.
