The Gay Divorcee cover

How do you tell your husband-to-be that you're secretly married ... to a woman?

How do you tell your husband-to-be that you're secretly married . . . to a woman?

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 (even if his nickname is 'The Incredible Sulk'). In short - he's living every gay man's dream. There's just one problem: Phil has been married before, seventeen 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 seventeen-year-old son. But that's all about to change . . .
Brilliantly funny, heart-warming and filled with bittersweet observations, The Gay Divorcee is a hugely entertaining tale of love, marriage and the lies that happen in between.

Burston can go from waspish to wise and back in a sentence . . . Bitchy, funny, acute and moving. A triumph * Suzanne Moore *
Wonderful, wicked and witty, laugh-out-loud funny and touching ... Burston's best yet. Loved it! * Marc Almond *
Immensely enjoyable * Julian Clary *
I absolutely loved it. Paul Burston is the nearest thing the UK has to Armistead Maupin * Jonathan Harvey, writer of BBC2’s Beautiful People *
