29? by Damian Lanigan
Frank Stretch is an Oxford
graduate who isn't quite making the grade. And he's developed
his own life scoring system to prove it - he marks everyone out
of 10 for money, sex, work, popularity, etc. His best friend,
Tom, scores an impressive 75, his flatmate Henry 59. But Frank
himself only manages 29. Coventry born author Damian Lanigan's
first book takes a darkly humorous look at modern-day choices -
take Frank's test and compare yourself.
