A funny, moving and highly original snapshot of what it is to be a thirtysomething in a post-Duran Duran world.Jon Marshall leads a pretty normal life. He's a partner in his own practice, owns a nice house in a nice suburb and cruises town in a Beemer. But things are about to change. Big time. It all kicks off when he falls prey to the vicissitudes of email dating and is forced to bear the brunt of the tantrums of a grumpy (and increasingly aggressive) Window Weasel, sent to him in a moment of madness by his friend and colleague, George. Events are complicated further by a new 'running buddy', a mad woman with eighties hair, and a very accident-prone cat, all of whom conspire to make Jon's world spiral ever so slightly out of control . . .Fortunately, the responsibility of being the lone parent to an adorable baby girl, nicknamed the Bean, brings him back to relative sanity, for it's the Bean who shows him life's endless possibilities.Nick Earls has written another terrific novel that will have you sniggering with glee and begging for more. PERFECT SKIN is sheer, indulgent delight!
