Paul Slippery is 49 and 5 months, and this is his diary in the lead-up to the great day. He lives with his long-suffering wife and three difficult teenage boys in Wimbledon, a figure of fun and pity. To compound his problems, he hears that the soap-opera radio part he has played for 25 years is to be killed off. Oh yes, and he can't remember when he last had sex. A cross between Helen Fielding and Sue Townsend, FORTYSOMETHING holds a funny, painful mirror up for the male fortysomething.
