More like Wrestling than dancing

More like wrestling than dancing

Sex and the City girls Anna and Natasha are looking for fun, love and money. But they’re stuck with the dregs of Bradford manhood…

Anna and Natasha are two old friends who share a grotty flat in Bradford. By day they work side by side in a shoe shop, and on Saturday nights they frequent the dodgy local nightclub, The Apollo. There, they’re becoming increasingly fed up with the calibre of men they meet – stupid, offensive, boring or all of the above. The friends visit the upmarket club, Bartok’s, where Anna meets Richard and Natasha, Geoffrey. Everything seems perfect but the course of true love does not run smooth: Richard is married, and Geoffrey is living a lie… This is a witty, compelling and eye-opening expose of the single life, friendship, and the realities of trying to get romantic relationships to work.

‘A superbly crafted second novel.’ Daily Express

‘Craig’s treatment of the girls is warm-hearted, fond, and full of foible-driven laughs, but it’s the men’s web of subterfuge which provokes the real side-clutching.’ i-D Magazine
