Synopsis

Men from the Boys by Tony Parsons

The final episode in the trilogy that began with the million-copy bestseller MAN AND BOY Harry Silver is settled and happy. But can it last? Life is good for Harry Silver. He has a beautiful wife, three wonderful children and a great job as producer of the cult radio show, A Clip Round the Ear. But Harry is about to turn forty and his ex-wife is back in town. Soon it could be time to kiss the good life goodbye! When Harry's 15-year-old son Pat moves out, Harry's perfect life seems to be falling apart. Into the chaos of Harry Silver's life stroll two old soldiers who fought alongside Harry's late father in The Battle of Monte Cassino in the spring of 1944. Will these two gallant old men help Harry to reclaim his son, his family, his wife and his life? And can they show Harry Silver what it really means to be a man?
