Description

After his wife's death, Simon Carr was left with the task of raising their two young boys alone. Moving yet humorous, it tells the story of Carr's relatively rule-free household, recounting his successes and his failures as a parent, and acting as a guide for those dealing with grief and parenting hand-in-hand.

Reviews

"Achingly funny and almost unbearably moving." - "Daily Mail
"Compulsive." -" Guardian
"Carr's brilliantly written account of life as a single parent should become a required manual on parenting." -" Sunday Times
