Publisher's Summary

Ten years on from Man and Boy, it is crunch time for Harry….

Life is good for Harry Silver. He has a beautiful wife, three wonderful children, and a great job as producer of the cult radio show, A Clip Round the Ear. But Harry is about to turn 40 and his ex-wife is back in town. Soon it could be time to kiss the good life goodbye.

When Harry's 15-year-old son Pat moves out to live with his mother, the hard times have only just begun. With his son gone, his job at risk, and his wife unsettled by the reappearance of her own ex, their dream seems to be falling apart.

Into the chaos of Harry Silver's life stroll two old soldiers who fought alongside Harry's late father in the Battle of Monte Cassino in the spring of 1944. Will these two grumpy old men help Harry reclaim his son, his family and his life? And can they show Harry Silver what it really means to be a man?

Funny, moving and unforgettable, Men from the Boys is a story of how we live now.

    "Chic Lit with a masculine view"

    Another fantastic read from Tony Parsons.

    This book follows on from earlier books but you don't have to have read them to enjoy this book. But I bet you'll want to.

    He deals with the complexities of blended families and all the complications that go along with them eloquently. His examination of lost love, in many forms, was really touching.

    The narrator had me in stitches - his interpretation of the main characters young daughter is hysterical but in a good way.

    I will listen to this little gem again.
