After the critically acclaimed Boy in the World, comes the follow-up novel from bestselling author, Niall Williams Boy and Man follows J as he continues in his search for his father. We left him in Ethiopia under the caring wing of Sister Bridget. But he still feels the pull to find his missing father – the link between his past and his future, and the piece that will link up the jigsaw puzzle of his life. He sets off to search Europe once again. As moving and poetic as Boy in the World, Boy and Man will appeal both to Niall Williams’s admirers and also fans of Paulo Coelho.
