Winner of the Yorkshire Post Novel of the Year Award.

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, and suddenly, everything begins to change... Over the next fortnight, Gavin might start, at last, to "get it right".
