Eugene Duffy is turning 70; his son Jim is turning 40.
For decades now, they’ve been running the family hardware shop and living in good-natured bachelor harmony. But time is marching on, and with thoughts of old age weighing heavily on his mind, Eugene is growing increasingly concerned about his son’s future.

He resolves to help in the best way possible: by finding Jim a wife. And he’s not going to let anyone –let alone Jim himself – stand in his way.
Reminiscent of Fredrik Backman’s bestselling novel A Man Called Ove, Duffy and Son contains a likeable but curmudgeonly main character, wry humour, tremendous heart, as well as a strong sense
of community.

It is a funny and heartwarming novel which celebrates the messiness of ordinary lives and would make a perfect reading group choice.
