Publisher's Summary

Man and Boy is 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.

Read by Colin Buchanan, Man and Boy is very well written, pacy, funny, and heart-breakingly moving.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Disappointing"

    I am nearly 30 and I've got 2 kids and I hoped to identify with this character but I didn't. I found all the characters unconvincing and not at all believable and the whole story just had me thinking 'In what world would this happen?' I didn't find it as funny as I hoped and felt the narrator was poor when voicing the characters. However, I am sure that a lot of this (bar the narrator) is due to the fact that it is abridged which I'm embarrassed to admit I didn't notice until after I purchased it. I'm not saying don't get this book, but definately don't get the abridged version, it's put me off any of his other books.
