About A Boy by Nick Hornby

Thirty-something, unmarried and very cool Londoner, Will Lightman’s search for eligible young women leads him to invent a young son so as to join Single Parents Alone Together, support group for single parents. As he is very proud of his superficiality, it appears at first to be the perfect solution, a place to meet beautiful women with whom he can have brief affairs but who will eventually dump him in favor of someone more suitable. Complications set in when Will meets Marcus, an impossibly uncool, twelve year old. Once Will lets Marcus into his life, he finds that not only is he capable of getting close to another person but it can be good thing as well.
