Praise for Man and Boy:
`Wistful, touching and funny, it looks back at the glory days of
the family without losing hope for the future. In the end, it is a
deeply touching book: a love letter to a son from his father, and
to a father from his son'
Mail on Sunday
`One of the finest books published this year... Hilarious and tear-jerking in turns' Express
Praise for One For My Baby:
`One For My Baby... covers almost the entire spectrum of human emotion with the same combination of self-deprecating humour and well-intentioned bafflement that endeared Man and Boy to millions of readers' Observer
`One For My Baby is stylish, polished, complex and it really gets its teeth into the big issues of sex, love, family and friendship' Mirror
