Summary

A Radio 4 Book Club Selection. Man and Boy is a fabulously engaging and exciting 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.
Read by Colin Buchanan, Man and Boy is very well written, pacy, funny, and heart-breakingly moving.

Critic reviews

"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)
