Man and Boy (Paperback)Tony Parsons (author)
- In stock online
A fabulously engaging and exciting novel about a man who has to learn about life and love the hard way.
Harry Silver has it all. A successful job in TV, a gorgeous wife, a lovely child. And in one moment of madness, he chucks it all away.
Man and Boy is the story of how he comes to terms with his life and achieves a degree of self-respect, bringing up his son alone and, gradually, learning what words like love and family really mean.
It is very well written, pacy, funny, and heart-breakingly moving.

`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'
