'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!

MEDIA 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

'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'
Daily Mail

'A touching novel... full of quiet tenderness, and written from the heart'
Independent

'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
