A rare treat ? a story of a hopelessly romantic male ? Mike Gayle?s debut novel, My Legendary Girlfriend is a touching and deeply funny novel. Dubbed `the male Bridget Jones?, lead character Will Kelly lives an existence that screams `single? following the waves of rejection that have washed over him for the past three years. Gayle presents the lonely English teacher superbly, resulting in a wonderfully observed book that anyone who has been in or out of love will associate with.
