Man and Wife (Harry Silver #2)
about why we fall in love and why we marry, why we stay and why we go.
Harry Silver is ready to try again at living "happily ever after." It won't be easy: not when he has to juggle his wife, Cyd, and ex-wife, Gina; his son, Pat, and his stepdaughter, Peggy; his own work and his wife's fast-growing career. When Gina announces that she's...more
This time it however isn't so much about the realtionship between the father and the son, as about the relationship between the husband and the wife. The man, Harry, and her (new, although that's not howe he likes to put it) wife, Cyd. This marriage doen't seam to be much better that Ha...more

Ternyata buku ini sequel dan saya sih belum baca yang pertama.
Menceritakan Harry Silver yang memulai hidup dengan istri keduanya, perebutan anak dengan istri pertama, ibunya yang terkena kanker.

Tony Parsons manages to capture the male psyche quite well, along with all the worries, concerns and foibles that feel ever present.
There are subtle pressures (well I feel them anyway) from all sides about what...more
Meskipun isinya gak sebagus sebelumnya yang ngegambarin bagaimana seorang pria yang pernah sekali gagal dalam pernikahannya yang bisa dibilang bahagia mencoba untuk jadi seorang ayah yang juga berperan ganda sebagai ibu.
Dibuku ini lebih menjelaskan Harry untuk mencapai apa yang dirasanya ideal, keluarga terpadu. Saya sendiri tidak begitu suka dengan karakter istri baru Harry, meskipun itu yang sebenarnya paling banyak terjadi saat ini.
The story it presents is quite common but far from simple. Harry Silver is a man with a complicated life. It didn’t use to be that complicated: he had a beautiful wif...more
