‘’Something’s just come in that might appeal to you’’, said Sue from The Bookbag, having just taken delivery of ‘’ Bête de Jour’’. Pleased to be thought of, I never mustered the courage to ask whether this thought was motivated by a previous liking for bloke lit, or by the book’s subtitle: ‘’The Intimate Adventures of an Ugly Man’’.

The beginning was hilarious but as the book proceeds the humour disappears and it becomes rather depressing but towards the end it picks up again.
