is razor-sharp and cringingly candid account of one man's quest for The One is as sad, fearless and funny as dating itself, following newly-single James as he navigates the world of online dating, blogging as the mysterious Romeo. Alix and Justin will discuss the book and the world of sex, relationships, online dating and gay narratives.

The Last Romeo has received rave endorsements from Adam Kay (funny, clever and warm), Daisy Buchanan ('Extremely funny, with real heart, depth and resonance') and Indy100: 'We can't remember the last time there was this much buzz in the literary world over a same-sex love story'.
Journalist Alix Fox is an X-rated agony aunt on The Modern Mann podcast, and helped brand the Royal Foundation's Heads Together campaign. Besides dozens of accolades and activities, she will be co-hosting a brand new late night sex comedy show for BBC Radio 1: Unexpected Fluids in May.
