Man and Boy (Harry Silver, #1) by Tony ParsonsWhen Man And Boy was published 20 years ago, no one expected it to be the hit that it was, nor that it would be the novel to redefine single fatherhood. Man And Boy was inspired by his life, not beholden to it. Eventually, someone gave him a chance and the book did modestly well. The novel was published at a time when notions of fatherhood were changing, but not so fast that a single father could escape the whispers and odd looks at the school gates. Parsons, in the late Seventies, was a writer for NME , covering punk shows at the same age his dad was fighting Nazis.
