A Guy’s View of Getting Dumped…and Winning Her Back
Novelist Matt Dunn Explores the “Man Makeover” in Hit Romantic Comedy Fiction

It’s not me…it’s you.

And with that, Edward Middleton’s girlfriend of ten years, Jane, is off to Tibet for three months leaving behind nothing but the bathroom scale (which she recommends for use other than stacking old newspapers on) and a note that reads in part, “You’ve let yourself go, so I’m letting you go too.”

So begins The Ex-Boyfriend’s Handbook (ISBN: 9781402243455; NOVEMBER 2010; $14.99 U.S./$17.99 CAN; Fiction; Trade Paper) by Matt Dunn.

First published in the UK in 2006 with more than 100,000 copies sold to date, The Ex-Boyfriend’s Handbook chronicles Edward’s journey to transform himself from Cuddly Teddy into Sexy Eddy in a Bridget Jones diary-style format. With the help of his Z-list TV celeb friend Dan, Edward finds himself exploring everything from Atkins to Botox, speed dating to waxing, in his quest to become Mr. Right.

“I’ve seen the crazy lengths my friends have gone to for love, and even done some pretty foolish things myself,” Dunn said. “That’s really what inspired me to write it. If you’re a woman, you might learn what us men really think about life, love, relationships, and the ‘opposite’ sex. If you’re a guy, you’ll probably cringe with embarrassment as you recognize that there’s more than a little bit of Edward in us all.”

The Ex-Boyfriend’s Handbook was shortlisted for the Romantic Novel of the Year Award, as well as the Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance.
