Greg Williams is an award-winning journalist and the author of three previous novels. After working at Esquire, Arena and Wallpaper* in the UK he now lives in New York with his wife and children and is the Executive Editor of Details magazine. His last novel, Another Man's Life, was published by Orion.
Men writing amusing novels about proper male characters with believable feelings was more a US phenomenon but now with Greg William’s The Accidental Father we can give the Yanks a run for their money. Bored and trapped, by work and marriage, Alex’s life isn’t going anywhere. But his wife’s affair with the local ‘hedge fund manager’ alpha male and the discovery he is a father to a 13yr old provide the impetus to change he needs – but the jury is out as to whether this is good or bad change. We have to agree with Dylan Jones, Editor of GQ who described the book as ‘Fast, Funny and Honest’.
