About this deal

He obsesses over her day and night, and beats himself up trying to figure out what he could've done differently. Since those early days Mike has written for a variety of publications including The Sunday Times, The Guardian and Cosmopolitan. Fresh, endearing, and full of humor, My Legendary Girlfriend tells a story that will ring true for everyone who’s ever tried to mend a broken heart. As we get into the era of recording-first, performance-second, Jarvis would get into the habit of procrastinating over putting down lyrics until he ended up writing them on the day he recorded them, but here the improvisation is all out in the open.

When Hodder Books offered the Squadpod an exclusive and limited PR run to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Mike Gayle’s debut novel I jumped at the chance to be part of it. For exactly three years afterwards in the case of Will Kelly, assigned to the "history" drawer on his 23rd birthday by Aggi, (she of the titular moniker) and who is now undergoing his 26th "celebration" alone in his bedsit in Archway, North London. It’s very much about unacquainted love and putting that someone on a pedestal, so much so that it holds the other person back from getting on with their life.It’s been three years since his heartthrob, Agnes, wrecked his life with a chat that started, “It’s like that song.

This is Pulp at the top of their game, the start of the band we love, their first undeniable classic, their “This is us, and we’re just getting started.

Look, we’ve all had that relationship that’s hard to get over, where you were sure they were The One, but they didn’t agree and ripped your heart out, but to be this obsessed after three years seemed quite ridiculous. The story mainly takes part in his cramped flat with telephone conversations to people he knows apart from Kate, the previous tenant, who he has never met in person yet spends hours talking to her on the phone.

Even Russell’s wah-wah guitar sounds utterly integral, though his influence in the group was waning by this point. You know I feel far, far more satisfaction in writing about books I thought were awful that were good. In his decrepit flat where he can't even manage to cook spaghetti hoops without setting of the communal smoke alarm, his lifeline is the telephone.and “no cheese tonight” – the BBC soundcheck version “girl over there with the hot pants on” and our first sighting of “that bloke who tries to sell you felt tip pens”. I then shot some stuff of my girlfriend of the time but then split up with her and became too depressed to use it… hmmm. It made me think, "When will all this whining over a girl who doesn't deserve his 'great love' ever end?
