Getting It Right
Winner of the Yorkshire Post Novel of the Year Award.
From the bestselling author of the Cazalet Chronicles comes Elizabeth Jane Howard's Getting It Right, a touching comedy about a young man trying desperately to get it right.
Gavin – a sensitive, shy, hairdresser in the West End – is, at thirty-one, still a virgin. He's a classic late developer, and he's worried that it's getting too late to develop at all.
Then one night, Gavin finds himself at a penthouse party and meets people the likes of which he's never come across before. Suddenly, everything begins to change . . .
Over the next fortnight, Gavin might start, at last, to 'get it right'.
Crammed with incidental pleasures . . . sometimes sad but more frequently hilarious . . . Getting It Right gets it, comically, right.
