This is an auction for ONE FOR MY BABY by Tony Parsons.

"Subtle and intelligent."
- The Times

"Full of hard-earned wisdom. An essential purchase."
- GQ magazine

"The same combination of self-deprecating humour and well-intentioned bafflement that endeared Man and Boy to millions of readers."
- The Observer

"Stylish, polished, complex and it really gets its teeth into the big issues of sex, love, family and friendship."
- Daily Mirror

"Another brilliant novel that combines laughter and tears, love and sex - and real human emotions."
- Evening Standard

"The writing is confident and accomplished! He makes the reader care! This is art shot through with humanity."
- Independent on Sunday

"Heartbreakingly universal and full of killer lines on love and love lost."
- Financial Times review:

"FIVE STARS!!! I read Tony Parson's previous novel "Man and Boy" last year and was waiting with expectation for his next book. I wasn't disappointed. It's a book in which you can relate to the characters and imagine yourself in their position, making exactly the same mistakes. Tony Parson's strength is his ability to recognise and describe the workings and emotions of a thirty-something man. It's about Alfie Bud, a man in his thirties who has lost his wife and his sense of direction in life and love. It's funny, sad and addictive all at the same time. Do the human thing and buy it."
