'101 stories from a male perspective, these pieces deal exclusively with girlfriends - in all their ecstatic and incomprehensible glory. Here Room 101 houses the idea of loss, and the pain of memory - of beautiful hair, eyes and smiles. In Rhodes's eccentric emotional world, girlfriends with the improbable names of Azure, Xanthe and Hummingbird hold all the cards. Their hapless suitors struggle to keep up...Effortless to read, amusing, and yet coloured with a deep sadness about the passing of things, you might be able to finish this attractive volume over a long coffee, but you will want to hold on to the truths it so skilfully offers - for as long as you would to love.
