Product description

Review

"Quite simply brilliant. I (genuinely) cried. I (genuinely) laughed out loud. It's profound, touching, personal yet universal . . . I loved it" (J.K. ROWLING)

"With enormous poignancy and insight . . . Webb's early portrait of himself as a hapless underdog navigating the boulder-strewn path of masculinity is vividly drawn and very funny . . . Echoes of Adrian Mole" (Guardian)

"Takes us deftly from hilarity to heart-stopping hurt . . . A truly great read, full of heart" (DAWN FRENCH)

"Frank and compelling . . . Laugh-out-loud funny . . . also, in parts, blink-back-tears sad. Why would I blink back tears rather than give full rein to the emotion? Well, Webb can explain" (Mail on Sunday)

"Written with wit and clarity, How Not To Be a Boy is a funny, rueful, truthful book. I enjoyed every page" (STEPHEN FRY)

"A brilliant telling of a sad story, it is also a manifesto for a change in attitudes . . . I laughed innumerable times and cried twice . . . You should give a copy to any young male you care about *****" (S Magazine, Sunday Express)

"A witty, honest coming-of-age story with a subtext that tackles masculinity and manhood. Webb has a storytelling skill many would kill for" (IAN RANKIN)

"Funny, poignant, revealing" (Daily Telegraph)

"Timely and candid, told with great humour, warmth and compassion. A much-needed contribution to the vital conversation about the damage gender can do" (JUNO DAWSON)

"Simply brilliant" (JOANNA LUMLEY)
