Praise

“Jimmy Sr [is] a wonderful mixture of obscene bluster and boozy sentimentality. . . . He’s intensely real, and the novel comes vividly alive as he begins to understand that he can’t control the feisty Sharon.”
–The New York Times Book Review

“Few novels depict parent-child relationships . . . better than this one, and few men could write sensitively about pregnancy. Don’t pass up this novel.”
–Los Angeles Times Book Review  

“Very, very funny . . . The most amazing account of a pregnancy ever written.”
–Maeve Binchy
