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.Read by Colin Buchanan, Man and Boy is very well written, pacy, funny, and heart-breakingly moving.


What the Critics Say

"One of the finest books published this year....Hilarious and tear-jerking in turns." (Express)
"Parsons has written a sharp, witty, and wise book straight from his heart. His characters are all nitty-gritty, bounce-off-the-page, real people; his dialogue is brilliant." (Daily Mail)
