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.
"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)

Short and sweet bildungsroman
- M. Griffiths
Little to no description and no plot = very dull soap-style story
