Charlie Big Potatoes is a bittersweet delight, proving that big boys do cry. And a lot more besides. Charlie Marshall is not a man who should be getting married. But the ceremony is in five days' time and it's too late to back out. His future mother-in-law has paid for 150 portions of salmon and his mates are about to drag him off to New York for a stag weekend he'll never forget - if he manages to live that long...You see, the consequences of his drunken life are about to fall on him like a ton of uneaten wedding cake. The booze and the drugs, the fights and the fires, the greedy boss, the girls and his mother are killing him faster than his knack for colliding with hard surfaces at high speed. So, trapped somewhere between married life and a night in casualty, Charlie attempts to face his demons and learns a few lessons about fidelity, fickle friends and gambling grandmothers along the way. But it remains to be seen whether he can gather his scattered wits, fake a quick recovery and get through rehab before his cheque bounces and his liver dissolves...
