After Simon Carr's second wife dies, he brings up two sons (one from a previous marriage) in a domestic set-up he describes as "free range", and that visiting mothers prefer to term "semi-feral". He shows how three males of different ages and character learn from each other.
After his wife's death, Simon Carr was left with the task of raising their two young boys alone. Moving yet humorous, it tells the story of Carr's relatively rule-free household, recounting his successes and his failures as a parent, and acting as a guide for those dealing with grief and parenting hand-in-hand.
