A poignant and witty 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. As millions of women have discovered before him, that is not as simple as it may have seemed. Man and Boy is by turns funny, sharp, warm, and heart-wrenching. It is a brilliantly engaging novel from one of the most gifted and influential commentators writing today.
