The Man Booker Prize Best Novel (nominee)
Who or what is Cherry? Steve Ellis doesn't know and he's beginning not to care. All he knows is that as soon as his perfect woman came into his life all the flatness and misery went away. But happiness comes with a price. When you meet a man in a bar and he arranges for you to fall in love there's bound to be some strings attached. Steve might be suspicious about playing along with the game, but he's convinced he can handle it, a belief that may well lead to his downfall ... Some people will do anything for love ... or what they think is love. Anything. In Steve Ellis Matt Thorne gives us a uniquely memorable fictional creation, and this arresting new novel is a haunting study of what can happen when your dream partner enters your life.
