Man and Wife Summary


Man and Wife by Tony Parsons

Harry Silver returns to face life in the "blended family." A wonderful new novel about modern times, which can be read as a sequel to the million selling Man and Boy, or completely on its own.

Man and Wife is a novel about love and marriage - about why we fall in love and why we marry; about why we stay and why we go.

Harry Silver is a man coming to terms with a divorce and a new marriage. He has to juggle with time and relationships, with his wife and his ex-wife, his son and his stepdaughter, his own work and his wife's fast-growing career.

Meanwhile his mother, who stood so steadfastly by his father until he died, is not getting any younger or stronger herself.

In fact, everything in Harry's life seems complicated. And when he meets a woman in a million, it gets even more so...

Man and Wife stands on its own as a brilliant novel about families in the new century, written with all the humour, passion and superb storytelling that have made Tony Parsons a favourite author in over thirty countries.

Man and Wife Reviews


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' Express

Praise for One for my Baby:

One for my Baby... covers almost the entire spectrum of human emotion with the same combination of self-deprecating humour and well-intentioned bafflement that endeared Man and Boy to millions of readers.' The Observer

`One For My Baby is stylish, polished, complex and it really gets its teeth into the big issues of sex, love, family and friendship.' The Mirror
