Sharp, bittersweet tales of middle-aged American men, in hot water with their women, with their sweet or streetwise kids, with their own consciences.

This is about the American husband and father: well meaning but caught out, horny but going to seed, adrift on dreams and fancies and looking for a break. Men in trouble. Each of these stories is touched by Wilson’s affection for male foibles.

‘Entertaining… Taut and funny’
— The Boston Globe

‘Sublime… it might be considered a companion volume to the movie ‘Sideways’’
— Seattle Weekly

‘Tantalising…his writing engages on every page with disarming intelligence and imagination’ — Elle

Jonathan Wilson is the author of the biography Marc Chagall, two novels, A Palestine Affair and The Hiding Room, two collections of stories, Schoom and An Ambulance is on the Way: Stories of Men in Trouble, and two critical studies of the fiction writings of Saul Bellow.
