Columnist and author Tony Parsons will be joining us here on Monday 6th October from 9-10pm for a live chat. Tony's sixth novel, 'My Favourite Wife' has just been published and is described by The Independent as 'a much bigger, more ambitious book' than million-selling 'Man and Boy'. If you can't make the chat you can post your questions in advance here.
Hope to see you here on Monday.

"Almost everything about Tony Parsons's work is cod (as indeed the critic Philip Hensher once demonstrated in an extended and devastating review in your pages). "

Carmenere Wed 01-Oct-08 16:05:06

Famous for his cardigans and dry wit, although he is a bit old, not sure why MN are having him on...

notwavingjusthaunting Wed 01-Oct-08 16:05:46

Jennyisjustknackered Wed 01-Oct-08 16:20:25

Apparently not, cod, apparently not.

PoppyFox Thu 02-Oct-08 17:41:34

I've read them all. They're quite readable. He writes like a woman I think. He used to be married to Julie Burchill. The poor sod. No wonder he ended up with gender dysphoria. grin

CountessDracula Thu 02-Oct-08 17:42:43

oh god
come back scheherazade all is forgiven
