About the Author

Robert Webb has been a male for his whole life. As such, he has been a boy in a world of fighting, pointless posturing, and the insistence that he stop crying. As an adult man, he has enjoyed better luck, both in his work as the Webb half of Mitchell & Webb in the Sony award-winning That Mitchell & Webb Sound and the Bafta award-winning That Mitchell & Webb Look, and as permanent man-boy Jeremy in the acclaimed Peep Show. Robert has been a columnist for The Telegraph and The New Statesman, and now lives in London with his wife and daughters, where he continues trying to be funny and to fumble beyond general expectations of manhood. @arobertwebb

Reviews

Quite simply brilliant. I (genuinely) cried. I (genuinely) laughed out loud. It's profound, touching, personal yet universal . . . I loved it -- J.K. ROWLING
With enormous poignancy and insight . . . Webb's early portrait of himself as a hapless underdog navigating the boulder-strewn path of masculinity is vividly drawn and very funny . . . Echoes of Adrian Mole * * Guardian * *
Takes us deftly from hilarity to heart-stopping hurt . . . A truly great read, full of heart -- DAWN FRENCH
Frank and compelling . . . Laugh-out-loud funny . . . also, in parts, blink-back-tears sad. Why would I blink back tears rather than give full rein to the emotion? Well, Webb can explain * * Mail on Sunday * *
Written with wit and clarity, How Not To Be a Boy is a funny, rueful, truthful book. I enjoyed every page -- STEPHEN FRY
A brilliant telling of a sad story, it is also a manifesto for a change in attitudes . . . I laughed innumerable times and cried twice . . . You should give a copy to any young male you care about ***** * * S Magazine, Sunday Express * *
A witty, honest coming-of-age story with a subtext that tackles masculinity and manhood. Webb has a storytelling skill many would kill for -- IAN RANKIN
Funny, poignant, revealing * * Daily Telegraph * *
Simply brilliant -- JOANNA LUMLEY
Funny and wonderful and necessary -- SARAH MILLICAN
