Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of About a Boy by Nick Hornby, read by Stephen Mangan.
Nick Hornby's second best-selling novel is about sex, manliness and fatherhood.
Will is 36, comfortable and child-free. And he's discovered a brilliant new way of meeting women - through single-parent groups.
Marcus is 12 and a little bit nerdish: he's got the kind of mother who made him listen to Joni Mitchell rather than Nirvana. Perhaps they can help each other out a little bit, and both can start to act their ages.

When Marcus is trying to hide the fact that Kurt Cobain has died.
No I can never do that, I like to spread the story out over a few trips to and from work.
