A Common Man’s Guide to Loving Women


Andrew Moodie

About the Book

Just as the stag party is about to begin, the bride cancels the wedding. Chris, the jilted fiancé, is a walking wounded, but as his three buddies attempt consolation we discover that they, too, are relationship-challenged. Four guys sit around and talk about sex, love, women…and the meaning of life. Jocular and playful, these men can also be frank in revealing their vulnerability and profound desire for love and understanding.


“Moodie has a sensitive ear for language, faithfully reproducing the prosaic absurdities inherent in daily conversation even as he burnishes them with a fine comic sheen—not unlike a David Mamet who’s lightened up and decided to laugh.”
