Girlfriend 44 supplies a sharp, sardonic study of one man's slant on relati ons between the sexes. Laddish, thirtysomething Harry is still looking for the woman of his dreams, after 43 failed attempts. When his mate Farley app arently commits suicide over a girl called Alice, Harry sets his sights on the bereaved, convinced that she's the woman of his dreams. There's just on e small catch--his best mate Gerrard is equally convinced that she's the on ly one for him and so the contest commences. A battle not so much of wits a s of puerile one-upmanship ensues as the pair project their own needs and d esires onto the object of their fantasies. Sporting metaphors are served up fast and furious in this rogues' rally:"So by cutting the levity ... he br ought the fight onto his own territory. Even if he failed ... he would stil l be there, like a tennis player hanging on in a demanding rally, biding hi s time to regain the cent re of the court." With its sharp one-liners, witt y observations and vivid characterisations, Mark Barrowcliffe's first novel Girlfriend 44 presents a provocative insight into the male psyche.
