The Second Best Man is being sold in aid of charity and I'm donating all the royalties I receive from the sale of it to Comic Relief (currently around £1.20 per book on Amazon or £3.30 from Lulu). Over the book's life I'm hoping to raise £1million for them so please buy a copy!
Readers have said:

R P Nathan (Paul to those who know him) has written a wonderful comedy of thwarted love, and this is his most polished work yet. The Second Best Man tells the tale of Alan and Hardeep, bosom buddies since primary school, whose friendship is sorely tested by Hardeep's engagement to the love of Alan's life. While chock-full of splendid comedy moments, the story is underpinned by a melancholic sense of frustrations and missed life opportunities that will be familiar to all, especially those of us who fill our trousers with dread at the thought of public speaking. Mix in some lobster flavoured slapstick, a sideways glance at modern race relations and some toe-curlingly awkward chat-up scenarios, and you have a winner. With snappy dialogue and puns to make Andy Saltzman proud, I urge you to buy this book – it's what Daphne would have wanted. Chris Vaughan
