Will is a rich, child-free and irresponsible Londoner in his thirties who, in his search for available women, invents an imaginary son and starts attending single parent meetings. As a result of one of his liaisons he meets Marcus, a strange 12-year-old boy with problems at school. Gradually, Will and Marcus become friends and, as Will teaches Marcus how to be a cool kid, Marcus helps Will to finally grow up.

“Good, better than the film...”

I've often preferred books to there films and this is no different. This book is a fantastic read and captures moments that don't always come across in the film. One of my favorite books and authors.
