A former punk rock journalist, newspaper columnist and British TV personality, Tony Parsons talks about his wildly popular and tender novel, Man and Boy, that explores the relationship between father and son. He also reads from this novel, which was voted in England as the ‘Book of the Year’ in 2000.  Though his first novel was published when he was 17, Parsons admits this is his “first good one” and talks about what he’s discovered in the process of writing and publishing this book.
