If I hadn't known differently, I'd have said Dai Alanye was a woman. He must have a deep understanding of women from the way he describes their clothes and their attitude to them. A had plenty of vicarious shopping trips while reading ''Not That I..'' and enjoyed every one.
And all the descriptions of delicious meals - they make the book both cosy and real. Not idealised, though - there's almost as much class-consciousness as in Jane Austen which might surprise non-American readers.
Believable characters and dialogue, humour (wait for the reference to The Mill on the Floss) and a satisfying, realistic ending make this a grown-up romance.
