Gilbert Welton’s life changed one breakfast time – his wife, Virginia, announced she was leaving him. The result is a hilarious and riotous look at the life of a very ordinary middle-aged man. Fiction.

I read Julian Symons' "The man who killed his wife" quite a few years ago and I loved it, so I was really looking forward to reading another one of his books. What a disappointment. The story was practically non-existent, the characters and their actions didn't make any sense and it was just a very tedious affair getting through this. A lot of the book was made up of not very interesting tidbits about the main character's business and not a whole lot happened really

'The Man Who Lost His Wife' is a rather tepid story, and a badly told story at that, concerning a middle aged London book publisher who fears his wife has ran off to (former) Yugoslavia with his business partner. He runs off to snoop on her and finds misadventure of his own. Although not without curious moments, I found this book to be very dull read. The characterizations are especially thin.

Bottom line: even Julian Symons fans should give this a miss.
Gilbert Welton is a fairly bland middle age man living a comfortable if not exciting life. At breakfast one morning his wife announce her desire to go on a holiday to reevaluate their marriage. Gilbert thinks it is nonsense but his wife is adamant that she needs some time away from him. She decides to travel to Yugoslavia (the story was published in 1970). Gilbert begins to grow suspicious that she is having an affair when his business partner also goes to Yugoslavia on business.
Symons weaves a deft tale showing how events conspire for a murder to occur, based on the character and psychology of the protaganist.
