The Apologist by Jay Rayner

The Apologist

Jay Rayner

You'll be really sorry if you do not read this book. You will have to make a deep act of contrition. How can you resist a book about relationships, chocolate and saying sorry on a grand scale? Read it, or you will be really, really, really so so sorry.
