Read by Alan Cumming.
Marcus is twelve. Will is thirty-six. Why can't they both act their age?
Nick Hornby explores the connections people make when the so-called ideal family model does not apply. Hornby keeps his eye on the subject while revealing much more - always cutting through received rubbish with a singular sense of purpose. And in the process he connects with a huge number of people who find his view of the world funny, wise and disarmingly entertaining.
This book tells you more about late-1990s cultural life than any number of flash mags and social treatises ever will.
