Tony Parsons on Life, Death and Breakfast (Paperback)Tony Parsons (author)
- Out of stock
A Full English of enlightening, honest and sometimes enraging stuff for men baffled by their place in the modern world...
'If a young lover breaks your heart, or if you fall off your Harley, if you make a fool of yourself, well, that is what men do, and what we have always done. That is not a mid-life crisis. It's just the latest in a long line of cock-ups.'
Tony Parsons shows us why, as well as being a bestselling novelist, he's also one of the Britain's most popular journalists.
This is modern life for men - explained. What the hell goes on in their heads, hearts and trousers, and why? It's about the sound of real guns and the feel of fake breasts. What to do when gobby yobs strike and you've got the kids in tow. About junk sex and performance anxiety; and how cars and football both went wrong.
