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
