"Hilarious and tear-jerking in turns."
- Daily Express (UK)

"A touching novel! Full of tenderness and written from the heart."
- The Independent (UK)

"A sharp, witty, and wise book."
- Daily Mail (UK)

"Harry Silver is in the prime of his life, on the cusp of turning 30. He's happily married to Gina, with whom he shares a four-year-old son, Pat. But Harry's world gets turned upside down when he rashly sleeps with a co-worker after a tough day at work. When Gina finds out, she leaves him, flying to Japan to pursue her dream of being a translator. She leaves Pat with Harry temporarily, and suddenly Harry has to figure out how to take care of his son and make a living. With the help of his parents and the new woman in his life, Harry begins to adapt to the role of being a single parent. Harry grows closer to both his son and his own father, who has an Old World toughness that Harry has never been able to connect to. Gina soon returns to claim Pat, and Harry realizes he's not ready to give his son up. A runaway best-seller in Britain, this warm, moving novel is certain to be a hit in the US, too."
