Sometimes in the smallest of boys, there beats the biggest of hearts. Eleven-year-old Herman is a normal boy. He's just starting to notice girls and, in turn, be noticed by them. He is not that different from other boys, until the day he wakes up to discover that he's losing his hair...all of it. Presented with this dilemma, Herman uses his fertile imagination and a comical viewpoint on life to navigate his way through the rough seas commonly known as growing up. In the process, he manages to teach everyone he knows something about friendship, courage, acceptance - and love.

"Herman is a beautiful evocation of the strangeness of childhood, of the awakening of desire and of the dawning awareness of finitude" -- Gerard Woodward Guardian "Full of authentic, off-beat charm" Daily Telegraph "Praise for THE HALF BROTHER: 'Bruising and brilliant... This is a great river of a book... Magnificent... Unique" Independent "Compulsively readable prose... A deeply felt, intricately worked and intellectually searching work of international importance" Guardian "The book of the year so far as the pleasure principle is concerned... Majestic" The Times
