We Can't All Be Astronauts : Your Friends Are Successes. You're a Failure. One Last Chance to Reach for the Stars... Paperback / softback
by Tim Clare
'"Right!" My Dad slammed his fist against the dashboard. "If you want to die let's f***ing die together!""Dad...don't," I said, referring to the profanity rather than the death-threat. But my father was lost in his own private Thelma and Louise moment.
His sleep-deprived eyes were like ping-pong ball halves.
His heel hit the accelerator...'Tim Clare had always dreamed of greatness.
Of writing a critically-acclaimed bestseller and quitting the rat-race of everyday life.
The problem was that his friends had got there first and he was... well... nowhere. Seething with envy, single and still living with his parents, he decided to have one last shot at getting his masterpiece published.
After all, things couldn't get any worse. Could they?From grovelling shamelessly to Jeffrey Archer on a reality TV show to a fraught encounter with The Most Powerful Woman in Publishing, a spectacular mental breakdown to an excruciating suicide pact moment with his dad, Tim soon finds the answer is a resounding 'yes'...
