Giles West has been married and faithful to his childhood sweetheart for 20 years. But now, turning 40, Giles decides that to have slept with only one partner is not to have lived. What he wants is an affair without complications or recriminations, so he decides to advertise in the personal column.

From the Back Cover:

A HILARIOUS STORY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MEN GET OLDER AND START BAHVING BADLY …

Giles West has been happily – and faithfully – married to his childhood sweetheart for twenty years. But with his fortieth birthday looming, Giles decides that to have had sex with only one partner your entire life is not to have lived – by modern standards. He doesn’t want to divorce his wife, he just wants to have … some point of comparison. What he wants is an anonymous affair without complications, repercussions or recriminations.

So he advertises in the peronals:
• 'Well-groomed, pleasant – looking happily married man seeks partner, 18 – 55, to have affair with. No strings attached. Interests: classical music and walking in the country. All letters answered. Please send photograph.
'

What results is an uproarious romp as Giles embarks on his big adventure, and gets much more than he ever bargained for …

A book for every man who has ever wondered what he’s missing. And for every woman who wants to remind him.
