Witty story of Silver, a lonely middle-aged ex-rockstar with a pregnant teenage daughter.
Another tear-jerker that's told with great wit, this time written from a bloke's point of view. Jonathan has been a pick on the Richard and Judy Book Club before, and this is a nicely observed poignant take on learning to be a man and a father before time runs out.
Genuinely very funny, as well as engaging and rather moving
Tropper is a master of the mid-life male coming-of-age story, and his latest is full of the charm and wit his readers cherish
It's amazing what can happen in the hands of the casually brilliant author. . . . Read and weep with laughter

'Eminently quotable, hilariously funny, and emotionally draining, this arresting tour de force will entertain well after the book is done'
'A tender and unexpectedly hilarious take on the messiness of family life'
Very well-observed . . . fabulously entertaining
Consistently witty, often insightful and full of strong and engaging characters
Sad, funny, brilliant
'Darkly entertaining . . . fast and fresh'
