9780007154739: About a Boy

Will Behr lives on his own and does not want children, but he does see the point of single mothers, especially if they look like Julie Christie. Then he meets Marcus, whose parents have split up and who is being persecuted by bullies. Marcus discovers that Will has a lot to teach him about life.

From the Back Cover:

Marcus knew he was weird, and that part of the reason he was weird was because his mum, not that long parted from his dad, was weird. But he could live with that – and with having the wrong hair, the wrong clothes and the complete lack of cool. Until his mum started crying before breakfast.

She often cried, but morning crying was something new, and it was a bad, bad sign. Enter Will, 36, the coolest of the cool and a determinedly child-free zone. Until he discovered a world of bright, attractive available women, thousands of them. Single mothers.

So Marcus and Will meet, each, obviously, with a lot to learn about living in the nineties.

By the best-selling author of 'Fever Pitch' and 'High Fidelity'
