    Susan Beale's debut novel The Good Guy has been shortlisted for the Costa First Novel Award and tells the story of a dreamer car-tyre salesman who lives in 1960s suburban New England.

    Ted craves admiration while his wife Abigail longs for a life of the mind and single girl Penny just wants to be loved. When a chance encounter brings Ted and Penny together, he begins to dream of a new life that revolves around her. However when this fantasy clashes with reality, Ted has to face up to the prospect of losing everything - and everyone - he holds dear.

    This is a compelling novel about love, marriage and the contrast between good intentions and self-deception.
