Product Details


“[A] fabulous new anthology of fatherhood essays…A true must-read for pros and expectant parents alike. It’s cutting and honest and hilarious and sad, with 22 essays from some of our best writers, such as Dennis Lehane, Justin Cronin, Lev Grossman, and many, many more…The essays are incredibly refreshing because they show fatherhood in such a vulnerable light—the good, the bad, the frustrating, and incredibly wonderful.”—Parade magazine

“These gifted writers charge full-force into the heart of fatherhood…[An] impressive collection.”—Publishers Weekly

“This collection could be subtitled ‘Profiles in Perseverance.’ These fathers have fought the battles, and we lucky readers receive this collection of wry, moving stories.”—Library Journal

“We lucky readers receive this collection of wry, moving stories.”—Kirkus Reviews

“A collection of luminous essays by men on parenthood that are easily read and terrifically illuminating…Full of remembrances and half-remembrances of parenting in all its glory: failure, triumph, joy, tribulation, humorous bits and tragedies big and small…Readers will laugh, or perhaps wipe a tear; parents will nod knowingly.”—Shelf Awareness
