Man and Boy

book | 1999
UK → HarperCollins

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.

This is the novel that launched Tony Parson's career as one of the best-selling and most-loved novelists of his generation.

Reviews

Wistful, touching and funny, it looks back at the glory days of the family without losing hope for the future. In the end, it is a deeply touching book: a love letter to a son from his father, and to a father from his son. Mail on Sunday

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
