9780099464532: A Boy's Guide to Track and Field

Lem Gulliver (25, maths teacher), can't seem to leave home. His mother (46, courtroom artist) and step-father (49, AA patrol man), make no secret of the fact that he's become a cuckoo in the nest but since his girlfriend left him for a dog trainer, Lem has returned to his natural state of emotional drift. He can't understand how the people around him manage the plot of a grown-up life.

A Boy's Guide to Track and Field starts at Walthamstow and travels southbound towards Brixton; the reader is swept along with Lem in a review of the past which gradually accelerates into the present.

Review:

"Countless modern novels tackle the breakdown of previously equal relationships between men and women following the arrival of children, but few do it with the sparkle and perception of Broadbent" ( Guardian)

"This stunning debut... is not to be missed... very funny, absorbing and moving, this comes highly recommended" ( Good Book Guide)

"Peppered with sharp observations... refreshingly original" (Tom Boncza-Tomaszewski Independent on Sunday)

"Acutely and wittily observed" (Kate Saunders The Times)

"An entertaining take on the mores of contemporary society" ( Time Out)

From the Publisher:

Wry, poignant and inventive - this is a story about a boy, and a young man who feels lost in this uncertain world and is struggling to find his way.
