Publisher's Summary

Jack is a teenager who wants nothing more than to be normal - even if being normal means having divorced parents and a rather strange best friend. But when Jack's father takes him out rowing on a lake and tells his son that he's gay, nothing will ever be normal again. Out of Jack's struggle to redefine 'family', comes a work of enormous humour, charm and resonance.


What the Critics Say

"From the prize-winning author of May we be Forgiven, Jack is a poignant and hilariously truthful coming of age novel"
"A moving novel and a very refreshing one. Jack. is such an engaging, attractive human being, it's a pleasure to believe in him'" (David Foster Wallace)
"Honest, uncompromising and savagely funny" (Madison Smartt Bell)

Predictable and dated. Good voice, but lame Story

Maybe good in the 1980s, now luckily the world is different and the reactions do not seem to come from a real teenager

Short and sweet bildungsroman

"May we be forgiven" was very funny in places but fell apart particularly at the end. This book is amusing rather than hilarious, but the story hangs together. I was surprised that this was her first book.
It is not about homophobia, it is about emerging into adulthood.
