Synopsis

William's Progress: Another Horror Story by Matt Rudd

A brilliant new comic novel about love, marriage, parenthood and the million tiny little things that conspire to trip you up on the rocky road to all three. William has a twelve-year-old boss bent on his destruction; the interior design duo from hell re-decorating his bathroom; and an angry ginger midget with a mean right hook on his case. Then there's the flood. And the village full of Machiavellian nutters. On the plus side, he has as a gorgeous wife and an adorable new son -- and he loves them both. It's just a shame that parenthood doesn't stop him doing the wrong thing at precisely the wrong time, with catastrophic results for his small -- and increasingly exasperated -- family. It's very nearly too much for one man to handle. Correction. It is ENTIRELY too much for one man to handle. And that man is William Walker.

Reviews

Praise for 'William Walker's First Year of Marriage: A Horror Story': 'Matt Rudd's sparklingly energetic, sometimes laugh-aloud, sometimes touching novel!mixes the accident-prone and amiable prattishness of Lucky Jim and Bridget Jones with a liberal dollop of farce.!William turns out to be an innocent searching for the right path.!Getting to know him is to enter into the blundering, puzzled hell of the male up against the eternal feminine enigma.
Elizabeth Buchan, Sunday Times

'Writing genius!the hilarious insights into a man's mind will make you laugh out loud'
Cosmo

'As far as honest representations of one's own gender go, there's got to be something fascinating about a book that provides such insightful glimpses into the male psyche!Brilliant characterisation with more than a whiff of authenticity, a fast-paced narrative and hilarious dialogue will keep you engrossed in William's various disasters to the end.'
Sara Lawrence, Daily Mail

'Meet the male Bridget Jones. William's just married and has a view on everything from ex-girlfirends and wives to male best friends and work. But his luck takes a hilarious turn for the worse. Be prepared to LOL on the train. 5 stars'
Company Magazine

'Hilarious and hugely enjoyable. A frank, funny insight into what men really think about women and marriage.'
Tracy Quan

About the Author

Matt Rudd

Matt Rudd is a writer and editor on the Sunday Times, where he has worked for seven years. In the name of journalism, he has fought three Mexican wrestlers single-handed, had an affair on 'SecondLife', binge-drunk at Wetherspoons, bruised himself on a Japanese toilet and spied on his wife Harriet using the very latest GPS technology. He has also stress-tested M&S Y-fronts but prefers not to talk about it. He is 34 and lives in Kent with Harriet and their two young sons.
