How do you tell your husband-to-be that you're secretly married… to a woman? In November 2008 Stonewall presented Paul Burston with an award for his outstanding coverage of gay issues in Time Out. Has become a genuine word-of-mouth seller within the gay community. 'Fast, wild, sexy and outrageously funny. I loved it!' - Russell T. Davies, writer of QUEER AS FOLK
Phil Davies should be happy. He has a flourishing bar in the heart of Soho and in six months he will be marrying Ashley, the man he adores. True, his best friend has nicknamed Ashley 'The Incredible Sulk', but to the outside world Phil is living every gay man's dream. There's just one little problem: Phil has been married before, twenty years ago. To a woman. In fact, technically Phil and Hazel are still married. And what Phil doesn't know yet is that Hazel has a son - a nineteen-year-old son. But that's all about to change …Brilliantly funny, heart warming and brimming with bittersweet observations on life, The Gay Divorcee is a hugely entertaining tale of love, marriage and the lies that happen in between.
