Stalling in life's middle lane? Time for a change of gear...

Man Alive is an hilarious novel that perfectly captures the highs and lows of modern family life, from acclaimed author Dave Hill. Perfect for fans of David Nicholls' Us or Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project.

Derek Hawker is getting on a bit but he's a good and successful chap. He has provided for his children, been faithful to his wife and as a visionary manager with the vast Bluelake retail mall he's at the peak of his career. But surely there is more to life than his half-baked, bite-sized chunk? Meanwhile his wife has gone off travelling around the world for a year off being a mother, and their two late-teen children are rebelling against their parent's values. Man Alive is a novel about teen wars, teenage angst and parents who refuse to grow old gracefully. It is warm, witty, insightful, humane and very funny.

What readers are saying about Dave Hill's novels:

'Enjoyable, witty and well observed'

'The quality and depth of the characters see this book through with flying colours'

'Narrative drive, gritty realism and sheer laugh-out-loud wit'
