A Million Little Pieces meets What Men Don't Talk About -- a raw, heartfelt memoir and a poignant insight into the emotional life of men

"Was this anything akin to love, this melodrama we seemed to bring out in each other? Was she really the one? I was trying my best to make her the one, or at least the one with whom I would stay. But one way or another, sooner or later, I knew I'd leave, she'd leave, we'd break up. I knew this. When hadn't we - when hadn't I? Every time."

At the age of forty-four, with the wreckage of a dozen broken relationships smoking behind him, Alan Close was single again. Again! This time, he decided to stop and take stock - and make a change.

With unflinching honesty, Close explored his relationships, affairs, family history and struggle with a secret eating disorder in a desire for intimacy and peace with the past. No man has ever written about relationships in this way. Humorous, lyrical and disarmingly candid, this memoir from novelist and former Good Weekend columnist Alan Close takes us inside what is to be a man today. Beautifully written and utterly compelling, it reveals much about men's emotions and their attitudes towards relationships. It holds a mirror to male readers and provides a rare insight for women.
