A wise, hilarious novel from the beloved, award-winning author of Funny Girl, High Fidelity and A Long Way Down. 

Will Freeman may have discovered the key to dating success: If the simple fact that they were single mothers meant that gorgeous women – women who would not ordinarily look twice a Will – might not only be willing, but enthusiastic about dating him, then he was really onto something. Single mothers – bright, attractive, available women – thousands of them, were all over London. He just had to find them.

SPAT: Single Parents – Alone Together. It was a brilliant plan. And Will wasn’t going to let the fact that he didn’t have a child himself hold him back. A fictional two-year-old named Ned wouldn’t be the first thing he’d invented. And it seems to go quite well at first, until he meets an actual twelve-year-old named Marcus, who is more than Will bargained for…

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Never too late to grow up

    Being responsible is never easy. Especially for a man like Will who liked to pretend to be a single father with invisible son. Being optimistic is never simple. Especial for a child like Marcus who unfortunately killed a duck in the park. Two men got together, and created a funny story ever. How to be group up is the issue in this book.
