About the Book

Television presenter and man-about-town Toby Marshallthinks he has it all. But in the days after his father has astartling accident, Toby makes a series of very bad decisionsthat throw his life into disarray. Jobless, friendless and suddenlysingle, Toby does the worst thing a man of his generation cando: he moves into the basement of his parents’ suburban bungalow.

Toby feels he has hit rock bottom. But his father’s increasinglyerratic behaviour, funny and terrifying at once, signalsmore profound challenges. Toby’s chance encounter with anunstable young francophone mother who abandons her two-year-old son to Toby’s care brings actual responsibility for thefirst time. Soon he is dealing with death, diapers and, ultimately,true love. Toby at last begins to climb out of the hole that is hislife -- muddy, broke, bruised, heartbroken -- but finally, a man.
