Life and Soul of the Party Press Reviews

'Moving and powerful'**** * Mirror * What I love about Mike Gayle is the way he seamlessly blends humour and sensitivity - his books are always rip-roaringly funny, yet so humane too. * Freya North * Packed with drama, friendship, love and tragedy, this is a brilliant touching tale of what happens when real life catches up with us. * Heat *
