Things my Girlfriend and I... was the funniest thing I've read in a long time.
Kinda like David Lodge on crack? I don't know if I like that analogy, but he captures relationships well and academia (but this time the support staff side) well, as does Lodge.
But there's more to it. More slapstick. More crazy. I mean, Lodge's people/situations are all totally believable everyday observations.
Millington's world is crazy, and yet, you do believe it anyway. I mean, Lodge would never have his university pay Chinese mobsters to recruit Asian students.
Don't read it if you're a librarain who is easily offended, though. He hits them pretty hard. But, on the other hand, I've known several librarians like the one in his book.
