Synopses & Reviews
Parsons' widely acclaimed debut novel; a Hornby"esque" take (if you will) on the lot of a male single parent in the nineties, who learns about life and love the hard way after a sudden fall from grace. Tony Parsons is certainly no wallflower and will promote tirelessly in his own mildly annoying "chirpy cockney" style. An unmitigated success in HarperCollins hardcover, this has all the makings of a Spring No.1 bestseller. "One of the finest books published this year... Hilarious and tear-jerking in turns" "Daily Express".
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. This is the story of how he comes to terms with his life and achieves a degree of self-respect, bringing up his son alone.
