A Diary of a Nobody for the modern age, Awkward Situations For Men allows us to spend a year in the life of Danny Wallace, ordinary man. Broken up into short two-three page chapters, each piece details a beautifully written awkward situation. Your toes will curl. You'll chuckle in recognition. You'll laugh your socks off! As the year progresses, Danny says the wrong thing about a friend's baby; fails to have a wee in a urinal; accidentally follows a woman down a dark street; has his party gate-crashed by a minor celebrity; wears pyjamas (I know, exciting isn't it!?); breaks all the rules; hides a pastry; eats alone in a car; accidentally spits on someone; tricks Su Pollard; avoids his old hairdresser; has an argument with a bishop; is mistaken for the (better) Danny Wallace; gets his wife a treat; and helps a lady who has accidentally got her skirt all hitched up. And in between all this, a story unfolds. Despite the fact that the book makes it abundantly clear that Danny can't even look after himself, we eventually discover that Danny, is going to be. a dad.
