Book Description

5 Jun 2014

Him & Me is a hugely entertaining and irreverent account of a unique relationship between a father and son. Written in two distinctive styles, it reflects the larger-than-life personalities of its authors, Jack and Michael Whitehall.

'This book is a portrait of the pretty odd relationship I have with my elderly father. It's given me an opportunity to share memories of him losing his temper with foreigners on holidays, being rude to my mother's family at Christmas and failing epically during the fathers' race at my prep school. He's also written some stories about me, but can I just say, before you read anything, that I recall being a calm, well-behaved and learned child, not the intellectually subnormal, mal-coordinated dipshit that he paints me as. Nor am I, as he suggests inside, a sex addict, a flasher or a Scientologist.' Jack

'How dare Jack refer to me as elderly! People always tell me how young I look for my age. In this book, I have at last been able to recount the many occasions when I have been let down by my only son. He failed on the stage, the sports field and he even screwed up the interview for his first boarding school by pretending he had mental health issues. Despite being practically illiterate, he tells stories about me, strewn with grammatical errors and peppered with endless exaggerations and lies. I was a kind, doting father, who guided his son through his formative years with love, care and respect.' Michael

'I'm not your only son, what about Barnaby?'

'Oh yes, I forgot about Barnaby.'

Packed with anecdotes, some embarrassing and indiscreet, many warm and touching, Him & Me is lavishly illustrated with family photographs and Jack's original illustrations. Friends, relatives, neighbours, teachers, actors, none are safe once Jack and Michael have opened up the Whitehall archives and shared their hilarious memories with us.

Disgracefully funny and rather touching (R4 Midweek)

I read Him and Me in two days and am happy to say that I found it impossible to put down for even a second. I implore you to ignore any reviews that say this book is 'dull' and 'very poor' because it most certainly isn't!! The book has a very unique premise as it recalls some very funny stories and memories from the Whitehall family saga from both Jack and Michael's point of view, from family holidays and Christmas time, to political differences to sexual attitudes between children and parents- and is a very refreshing and endearing look at the loving relationship between father and son. It is also without a doubt, a very funny book with lots of 'laugh out loud' moments (and some hilarious illustrations from Jack!) and if you want a book to read when you are feeling a bit low, I guarantee this will not disappoint, especially if you like Jack Whitehall. A wonderfully
Warm and witty delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very endearing 7 Nov 2013
By lana
Format:Hardcover
I laughed out loud many times and was very sorry when I finished it. I liked the format and the father/son sparring. I loved the cartoons and the asides...'stupid boy'. I think the humour, glimpses of family life and relationships will appeal to many. Fond and witty. I think it will be enjoyed by all Jack fans and those who relish banter especially with their two voices in mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best read 21 Jan 2014
By Anna
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a Jack whitehall fan and a fan of 'Chatback' I bought this book immediately, however I was suprised to find Michael Whitehalls chapters bare champion over Jacks when it comes to a good read. This is a brilliant book and I was very sad to have finished it, worth the buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and heartwarming 27 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover
This is one of the funniest books I have read in a long time, and laughed out loud! Jack and Michael clearly have a very close relationship and are even funnier live. I highly recommend this book and have bought two more copies for my nieces for Christmas! Definitely buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Him and Me 28 Oct 2013
By hws
Format:Hardcover
It is a strange situation in which a father and son might write a book such as this and even more extraordinary is that it is both well written and hugely entertaining. Don't be put off by the stereotypes in your head. Read and enjoy!
