`Wistful, touching and funny' Mail on Sunday
`Hilarious and tear-jerking in turns' Express
`A sharp, witty and wise book straight from the heart' Daily Mail
Harry Silver has it all. A successful job in TV, a gorgeous wife, a lovely child. But in one moment of madness, he chucks it all away.
A modern classic, Man and Boy is a hilarious and touching novel about how Harry comes to terms with his life, brings up his son alone and, gradually, learns what words like love and family really mean.
Includes a new foreword and Q&A from Tony Parsons!
Praise for Man and Boy:
`Wistful, touching and funny, it looks back at the glory days of the family without losing hope for the future. In the end, it is a deeply touching book: a love letter to a son from his father, and to a father from his son'
Mail on Sunday
`One of the finest books published this year... Hilarious and tear-jerking in turns'
`Parsons has written a sharp, witty and wise book straight from his heart. His characters are all nitty-gritty, bounce-off-the-page, real people; his dialogue is brilliant'
`A touching novel... full of quiet tenderness, and written from the heart'
`A finely constructed novel that says more about human relationships than a library of psychology manuals, hitting the funny bone and the emotional jugular at one and the same time' Irish Times
`A grown-up novel that is simultaneously a heart-rending gripping read and suffused with an irresistible reality' Glasgow Herald
