How would you feel if, one day, you discover that everything you thought you knew about your family was a fabrication? Your mother wasn’t your mother, your father was a liar and your whole upbringing was a sham.
Confronted with this exact situation, Dave Fazackerley doesn’t feel great. It doesn’t help that he has just buried the woman he thought of as his mother. Or that his wife, his one true soulmate, recently jumped into bed with a librarian. Even his band, his only escape from reality, is going through a rough patch.
How will Dave respond? Will he discover the truth about his family? Will his band ever play a gig again? More importantly, can Dave entice his wife back from the arms of the book-dork or will he take a chance on a new love?
About the Author
Realising that life was in danger of becoming all too serious, Ben started writing. Not in the way that Forrest Gump started running, but at least he started. He wrote on steamed up mirrors in the bathroom to make his children smile. Eventually he graduated to making up stories to entertain his kids at bedtime.
For some reason, his boys didn’t seem interested in his tales of every-day life, relationships, family, trauma, farce and the occasional bit of debauchery. They preferred JK someone or other.
Following his short-lived career as a children’s author, Ben now concentrates on writing stories for grown-ups. He writes for people who have lived, loved, worked, strived and suffered – people like him. People like you.
Ben lives in southwest London with his two boys and Albus, his dog.

I’ll be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of male authors when it comes to this sort of fiction, maybe I just can’t relate to the inner voice of a man. But Ben did something different and let me get into the head space of Dave easily. Dave who has had a very bad period in his life, losing his mother to cancer and wife to a librarian. When Dave receives a letter from his mother which changes his whole history and likely his future, his outlook on life changes. Ben has written a complicated character in Dave, as well as a great supporting cast. This book definitely made a difference to my usual opinion of male writers/characters in anything other than a thriller.
