whatever made him happy. A Note on the Author. The only TV programme she ever watched from start to finish without dozing off was the news, which she liked to see twice a night, perched on the edge of an armchair, her face a twitching mask of empathy, horror and dismay at the ever more lurid and unpredictable ways in which the world was becoming scarier.

William Sutcliffe (born 9 March 1971) is a British novelist. He has written many acclaimed novels, spanning genres from satire to YA fiction. His book Whatever Makes Happy has been adapted into a film by Netflix, under the title Otherhood. Sutcliffe's novels could be categorised as humorous. New Boy has much authentic material in it that refers to actual incidents from his life at Haberdashers', although it would be going too far to call it "autobiographical".

Laugh-out-loud funny and instantly recognisable - not since The Inbetweeners has a coming of age story been so irreverent and relatable. Fifteen-year-old Sam is not a famous vlogger, he's never gone viral, and he doesn't want to be the Next Big Thing. In fact he's ordinary and proud of it. None of which was a problem until Dad got rich and Mum made the whole family move to London. First published as Whatever Makes You Happy, the hilarious and moving novel about mothers and their adult sons will soon be a Netflix original movie starring Felicity Huffman, Angela Bassett and Patricia Arquette Three sons.

"An excellent comic novel that interweaves the romance, humor, and pathos of three complicated families."―Publishers Weekly Three suburban moms who have long been friends decide to show up unannounced at the homes of their thirty-something layabout sons. Their goal: to swoop in and set things right. The result: a hilarious mix that will resonate with mothers who can't turn a blind eye and their adult sons who can't quite get it together.

Being the mom of a 36 year-old son myself, I was naturally drawn to the story of these three women wanting to get to know their sons better. I'm glad mine is happily married though, so I wouldn't have to make the bold move they did here. At times I wanted to yell "NOOOO!" at their antics, but I have to say that overall it was well-written, amusing, touching and not-so-Hollywood-perfect like I was dreading by the conclusion. Carol and Matt, Helen and Paul, and Gillian and Daniel will stay with you after you'be finished the book. Great, quick read.
This was great. I like how it told the perspectives from the moms. as a young mom.I cant imagine not knowing my kids so this really touched me.
It's a very simple story of different day to day lives of 6 people. Something most of us know about. But a great reminder of a few things and brings out a each persons individual perspective of dealing with what's been dealt to them. Definitely a great book club read.
I stumbled upon this book at just the right time in my life. I'm 51 with a 21 year old son who does not live with me. So I relate well to the mothers' points of view. The author described aging as if he were a woman himself! Very insightful. I LOVED this book. It made me laugh and cry. Highly recommend it.
Fun book, on different people, different way of live.
mothers and sons, way to live together. always be happy with what you have.
I found this book by pure chance, but I am very glad I did. I recommend it highly. It wasn't the book I expected it to be, and that was a good surprise.
