In Company Of Women might best be described as satire, or a coming of age story, 40 being that age in Mike Randall's case. Mike considers himself the alta-male but he probably has a little more to do before claiming such a title. Since we're in first person (stick with me) nothing is hidden, at least for the reader. So the veil between moral behaviour and depraved thinking, that men must cast to preserve at least some decency, is slipped so you can peer in. In there, Mike is tormented by male-pattern lust, conflicted about his marriage to Melina and, if that wasn't enough, regularly has his self-esteem obliterated by his best (only) friend, and nemesis, Geoff. Despite being a psychologist, Mike has no remedy for his own mental demise. In the most improbable of circumstances, however, Mike’s quickening slip into early midlife madness is circumvented by finally having something useful to do. Being a coward, evader of obstacles and prone to fainting spells, becoming a hero comes with a certain level of reluctance for Mike, but since all who matter to him are now relying on him he must learn to cope under the pressure. So, will Mike be the man for the job? – You’ll just have to see. Click here to read.
