Getting It Right
Winner of the Yorkshire Post Novel of the Year Award.
From the bestselling author of the Cazalet Chronicles, Elizabeth Jane Howard, Getting It Right is a touching comedy about a young man trying desperately to come of age.
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. There, he meets new 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' . . .
