LoveReading Expert Review of The Accidental Father

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’.

The Accidental Father Synopsis

Alex Taylor is a lucky man. He has a large house in the London suburbs, a well-paid job and a beautiful wife. On the surface everything is rosy. Or is it? He is bored by his job, has a love/hate marriage, and drinks more than he should. But then his world changes when he's told he's been left something in an ex-girlfriend's will - a daughter, Caitlin. A daughter he never knew he had and who has no other relatives...Taking on the responsibility of a daughter is not easy. How will Alex dodge social services, form a relationship with Caitlin - a thirteen-year-old stranger - and somehow find it within himself to put down new roots and rebuild his life from scratch?
