Paperbacks: Instructions for Living Someone Else's Life, by Mil Millington

Click to follow

The dilemma of Millington's character, a 25-year-old advertising copywriter who wakes up to find he is 43, is that he is absolutely brilliant at writing trashy little ads.

Fortunately Millington, a columnist, can sustain his talent for longer as his hapless hero finds a way to make the best of being a grown-up. Though the dialogue can be a little forced, his arch style will please fans of his previous writing – as well as 43-year-olds.
