Summary

A Publishers Weekly Pick of the Week

“Magical prose stylist” Michael Chabon (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times) delivers a collection of essays—heartfelt, humorous, insightful, wise—on the meaning of fatherhood.

Review Quotes

“[A] literary ode to parenting.”

Library Journal (starred review)

“Chabon expertly weaves together past and present events, infusing them with humor, pop culture, and profound observations.”

(Booklist, starred review)

“Chabon takes a breezy approach in these meditations on fatherhood…Even when he’s driving at cruising speed, Chabon takes his readers for an enjoyable ride.”

Kirkus Reviews

“A deeply affecting collection of essays that scrutinize and celebrate the complexities of relationships between fathers and their children. Selections range from the quietly heartbreaking, as when Chabon describes the inadvertent hurt a father can impart on a child, to the hilarious…Avoiding an overly sentimental tone or rose-colored perspective, Chabon doesn’t shy away from reflecting on parental failures as well as successes…Packs an outsized emotional punch.”
