Review :

Man and Wife, the sequel to Tony Parsons's bestselling debut Man and Boy, follows the marital and parental misadventures of Harry Silver, a mawkish North London television producer. Harry has remarried. Second wife Cyd and her feisty daughter, Peggy, provide him and his Phantom Menace-obsessed son, Pat, with a family. Harry's luck couldn't be better. His television show, Fish on Friday, is a hit and Cyd's posh catering company, Food Glorious Food, is thriving. However, Harry is not the only one starting again. His ex-wife Gina has also remarried. Her partner Richard (who must be the only thirtysomething male on the planet who hates Star Wars) is Pat's "new father." When the couple announce they are moving to America--taking Pat with them--Harry reacts, in time-honored fashion, by attacking Richard. Separated from his son by the Atlantic and struggling as Peggy's stepfather, Harry begins to yearn for a good, old-fashioned "normal, family life"--the kind his lovely old mum and dear departed dad enjoyed. Rather surprisingly, he decides that Kazumi, an attractive Japanese photographer friend of Gina's, could be the answer to his prayers.

Male frailty and the perils of modern parenting are Parsons's forte, but Man and Wife, although occasionally touching, is overburdened by plot twists, unlikely conceits, and whiffs of reactionary sentimentality. Parsons's fans are unlikely to be disappointed but, to indulge in a vaguely pertinent comparison, this follow-up is definitely more Attack of the Clones than The Empire Strikes Back. --Travis Elborough, Amazon.co.uk

About the Author :
