Book Description
New novel about men, love and relationships by the author of the Book of the Year, Man and Boy. Alfie Budd found the perfect woman with whom to spend the rest of his life, and then lost her. He doesn't believe you get a second chance at love. Returning to the England he left behind during the brief, idyllic time of his marriage, Alfie finds the rest of his world collapsing around him. He takes comfort in a string of pointless, transient affairs with his students at Churchill's Language School, and he tries to learn Tai Chi from an old Chinese man, George Chang. Will Alfie ever find a family life as strong as the Changs'? Can he give up meaningless sex for a meaningful relationship? And how do you play it when the woman you like has a difficult child who is infatuated with a TV wrestler known as The Slab? Like his runaway bestseller, Man and Boy, Tony Parsons's new novel is full of laughter and tears, biting social comment and overwhelming emotion.

    have to admit that this is not as good as Man and Boy, but it's impossible for one, who has lived in both London and Hong Kong, not to like this book.

    題外話:本野翻譯唔惦...看來都唔會買佢本好似出名的男人與男孩了,

    每每讀到一半讀不下去,淚水含在眼框。只有曾經失去過一個人,會了解同樣的心情。那是哀悼期,是長假,是你的弔念和他的回憶。我也想像男主角一樣學太極,不是只有太極這件事,是想不要迷惘,逃避哀傷。
