Matthew Oxenhay is 60: a stranger to his wife, an embarrassment to his children and a failed former contender for the top job at his city firm.
Seizing on his birthday party as an opportunity to deliver some rather crushing home truths to his assembled loved ones, it seems as though Matthew might have hit rock bottom. The truth, however, is that he has some way to go yet.
"With his gallows humour and observational wit, Jim Powell gives us a vivid portrait of a man in meltdown." (Daily Mail)
"Trading Futures has a Reginald Perrin charm about it and an unexpected twist in the tail, but it stays affably bleak to the end." (Sunday Times)
"What starts as a light and droll Reggie Perrin-style novel about the fall of a middle-aged everyman, a 'perfect makeweight in an identity parade', becomes surprisingly dark and intense. We see the crack-up through Matthew's eyes, which also allows for some wittily caustic observations about modern living." (The Times)
