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.

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