"Set your other books aside for a day or two and read straight through Man and Boy." —USA Today

Some situations to avoid when preparing for your all-important, finally-I-am-fully-grown thirtieth birthday:

?Having a one-night stand with a colleague from work.
?The rash purchase of luxury items you can't afford.
?Being left by your wife.
?Losing your job.
?Suddenly becoming a single parent.

If you are coming up on thirty, whatever you do, don't do any of that. It will f*** up your whole day.

The plot may be a little too familiar at first (man’s infidelity precipitates loss of wife) but the story is oddly compelling. The first person narration has the impact of a journal—immediate, raw and very much revealing the flaws of the protagonist. Bringing to mind a young, modern John Updike, the author describes the difficult transition both men and women must finally make when faced with loss, whether of love, job, freedom, parents or in this case all four!
