Who is Tom Ditto? by Danny Wallace
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Tom meets Hayley, falls in love and they move to London. He finds work as an early morning newsreader on local radio, she in a dress shop. Life is good then Hayley goes walk-about and Tom tries to find her. What he finds is an odd bunch of people who enhance their lives by following and copying other people. All very odd. They seem unhappy people in sad situations but this is Danny Wallace so it becomes strangely humorous, astute and addictive. A very clever, unusual work.

Synopsis

Who is Tom Ditto? by Danny Wallace

Tom got a note from his girlfriend. It says she hasn't left him, but she's gone. But where the hell is she? When is she coming back? And what is Tom supposed to do in the meantime? With each new clue to Hayley's whereabouts, Tom is forced to question whether he truly knows his girlfriend at all. Because who is Hayley really, anyway? Who is this other strange girl following him? And who, for that matter, is Tom Ditto?

Reviews

'Tremendous. A wonderfully well-observed and beguiling novel - shrewd, funny and stealthily profound' William Boyd

'Who is Tom Ditto? is Danny Wallace at his very best: funny, assured and relentlessly clever. A brilliant novel' -- John Niven

'An air of mystery and of a past being reconstructed, with a booster shot of comedy...As you would expect from the author of Awkward Situations for Men, the toe-curling embarrassment of much of Tom's life is well realised' Observer
