Fat, Forty And Fired by Nigel Marsh

Regular price $14.50 Sale

As he approaches forty, Nigel Marsh is in a seemingly enviable position in life: he has just moved with his family from the UK to Sydney, a city he loves, and he runs the Australian office of a leading advertising agency. Unfortunately, he is also stressed, overweight and struggling to balance a high-pressure career, a marriage and the demands of four small children. But his real adventure begins when the unthinkable happens: he loses his job. After the initial shock, Marsh makes a bold decision - to take a year off, embrace life outside the office and reconnect with his family. Fat, 40 & Fired is his hilarious, insightful and deeply moving account of his 'gap year' at home. It follows Marsh and his family through the ups and downs as he rediscovers the joys (and pitfalls) of fatherhood, loses the 20 kg he's put on since starting his career, kicks his drinking habit, trains for an ocean swim race and generally gets his house in order - after, of course, moving to a smaller one. An unforgettable adventure from a talented new writer, Fat, 40 & Fired is a story for every man and woman who has ever dreamed about leaving the rat race behind and living a more meaningful life. This 2006 Piatkus Books Paperback is in Good condition.
