Gayle scores sucess in slightly different territory, 8 Jun 2001
Gayle's previous two books showed a man who was clearly in tune with the modern man's failure in relationships. In Turning Thirty, he turns his hand to the other twenty-something male obsession - age. While there are set pieces that could be taken straight from My Lengendary Girlfriend or Mr Committment, this is a more mature book, relying less on the laughs and without the perfect Hollywood endings of the others. The story focuses on a man approaching thirty, just broken up from his girlfriend, who decides to go back home to his parents in a three month break from work. There he hooks up with old friends to discover the meaning of life, etc. Anyone who loved the film "Beautiful Girls" will love this!
