Aka M.D Lachlan.He grew up in Coventry and studied at the University of Sussex He worked as a journalist and also as a stand up comedian before he started writing his first novel, Girlfriend 44 He lives and writes in Brighton, England and South Cambridgeshire Ron Howard secured the film rights for Girlfriend 44 and Infidelity for First Time Fathers is in development with 2929.Barrowcliffe achieved early success in the late 1990s as part of the Lad Lit movement, although his writing has little in common with other writers who were bracketed under that heading He is nearer to Terry Southern, Jonathan Coe and Martin Amis than he is to Nick Hornby or Mike Gayle.This isthan likely a matter of presentation, as most of the British versions of his novels have appeared in the candy coloured covers favoured by lad and chick lit publishers.Barrowcliffe s early work was noted for its cynicism and black humour, although Lucky Dog strikes a lighter tone, that of comedic magic realism.At his best Barrowcliffe can be irreverent and very funny Rugby, for instance, is described as a game invented by the English public schools in order to encourage homosexuality Of a woman who has had a tough time and put on weight, he says her life had hit the crash barriers and it looked as though an air bag had gone off inside her face He is also insightful Lucky Dog, for instance, says a lot about how we cope with death, our own and those of the people we love.Sometimes, though, particularly in his first novel Girlfriend 44, Barrowcliffe can be long winded in his comic diversions.The Elfish Gene is a memoir of growing up uncool, confused, and obsessed with Dungeons and Dragons and other role playing games.Barrowcliffe is certainly one of Britain soriginal and interesting new writers but it remains to be seen if he can survive being labelled as part of the Lad Lit fad.

    You soon realise why this book is in the bargain bin The author has clearly read a bit of Tony Parsons and Nick Hornby and said I ll have a piece of that, thank you If you took out the over wrought metaphors, you d have nothing ...

    I was sort of morbidly intrigued by the title, I think, but this isn t my type of book Interesting as a romance novel from the male point of view, I guess, but the characters felt shallow and I didn t understand a lot of the slang I looked up some of that but it started to seem pointless Easy read, ...

    Garbage Six pages of long winded, crude, laddish humour was enough I used to never abandon books, but life is too short and I knew this was just going to annoy me.

    Nope, not my type I didn t find it funny and it was a drag Won t recommend it.

    I really didn t like this book and would have given it only 1 star but I did actually find it quite easy to get through so I moved it up to 2 stars To be fair to the book, I was predisposed to dislike it just from the title I hate books about men who have reached their 30s and try to justify infidelity by a mid life crisis Stewart is the horrible and unhappy protagonist in this book He does actually want children just not with the person he has been in a relationship with for 8 years I really didn t like this book and would have given it only 1...

    As all books are to me, the beginning can be a little slow and dull But once I passed the first few chapters, the pace of the storyline gradually picks up But with this book, I was intrigued the moment I started I was surprised that it began with an introduction of who the character is and what sort of person he is Mark Barrowcliffe certainly jumped straight into deep waters and enjoyed himself wallowing in it Trouble was already afoot and the author just knew...

    Spoilers Not the worst thing I ever read, but two things bothered me about this book.1 The author is extremely long winded in all of his humor I felt like I had read two paragraphs until he got to the punchline, and by then I had forgotten what in the hell he was talking about 2 The author did the thing I hoped he wouldn t do, which is have the protagonist s fiancee cheat on him too, so it almost justified that he cheated as well And he made the baby not his Oh, isn t everything wrapped Spoilers Not the worst thing I ever read, but two things bothered me about this book.1 The author is extremely long winded in all of his humor I felt like I had read two paragraphs until he got to the punchline, and by then I had forgotten what in the hell he was talking about 2 The author did the thing I hoped he wo...

    I stumbled across this while browsing the library stacks and I m glad I did I love this book It s a manual of everything that can go wrong in a man s life after between the quarter life and mid life crises Stewart Dag finds himself having to choose between his pregnant fiancee and his equally pregnant bit on the side This modern day Hamlet does a spectacular job of digging an even deeper hole Throw in some nimble dialogue, witty commentary, and apt insight from the oddest places and this I stumbled across this while browsing the library stacks and I m glad ...

    I was hoping this would be a little grittier It was actually a light hearted comedy that turns out exactly as one expects it to I liked the honestly and the character s lack of ability to make any sort of adult decision for himself I might kno...
