Jim and Alison have been together on-and-off for a decade. Having successfully navigated their relationship through student gigs to candle-lit dinner parties, they have finally split up. And divided their 22 shared items (including a double-bed, a microwave, a ring, a toaster, an Oasis album, a car and a 5ft tall rubber plant) into his 'n' hers. Now with the help of a relationship counsellor, they embark on a journey through the past to the present leading them to the biggest decision of their adult lives. Previously an Agony Uncle, Mike Gayle is a freelance journalist and the acclaimed author of My Legendary Girlfriend, Mr Commitment, Turning Thirty and Dinner for Two.
