    Charlie Savage is a middle-aged Dubliner with a long-suffering wife, a daughter who is determined to drag him into the 21st century, a drinking partner who has realized that inside he’s been a woman all along… In a series of weekly pieces in the Irish Independent over the whole of 2017 Charlie spoke to us of his hopes and fears and anxieties. This book collects those pieces in one volume.
