schema:description"At only twenty-five, Jack Lancaster is far too young to be having a mid-life crisis, but he's going to have a pretty good shot at it anyway. On the surface, his is an idyllic situation: highly-paid job in the city, subsidised flat in West London, beautiful girlfriend. But when he dumps Lucy and she sleeps with his best friend, Rick, by way of revenge, Jack's life begins to fall apart. His inept attempts to woo his attractive new colleague, Layla, become increasingly frustrated. His hairline is retreating faster than a brigade of Italian war heroes. His search for a sense of 'purpose' in life remains unfulfilled. Deciding that life is too short to continue putting numbers into Excel boxes, Jack succeeds in getting sacked from work and embarks on a bumbling journey of self-discovery, taking in the House of Commons, the Inca Trail and a small prep school in Berkshire. This is a novel for disillusioned twenty somethings everywhere."
