Robert Webb’s highly personal coming-of-age memoir about not fitting in and a crisis in early adulthood achieved the unusual combination of review plaudits as well as best-seller status. It is a poignant and often hilarious examination of the shifting sands of male identity, told against the backdrop of his own difficult upbringing and student years at Cambridge. “Quite simply brilliant, I (genuinely) cried. I (genuinely) laughed out loud. It’s profound, touching, personal yet universal” (J.K. Rowling). Robert Webb discusses what it means to be a man in today’s world with Miranda Sawyer, author of Out of Time.
