Summary

Ray is not a bad guy. He mostly did not cheat on his heavily pregnant wife. He only sometimes despises every one of his friends. And though his career as a freelance tech journalist is dismal and he spends his afternoons churning out third-rate listicles in his boxer briefs, he dreams of making a difference. 

But Ray is about to learn that his special talent is for making things worse.

Heartbreaking, hilarious and borderline insane...

I laughed, I cringed, I prayed to god I was nothing like the lead character whilst secretly sharing at least two worryingly similar traits. Joe Dunthorne is a wonderfully tragic narrator and his writing id shocking, ridiculous, funny and desperately sad in equal measure. I loved it.
