Reviews

"Chabon's book feels like a late-night talk with a friend about how we love our kids and how hopeful we are that we're better dads than we fear."--Judd Apatow, New York Times Book Review
"Poignant, often hysterical essays on what it means to be a dad, a son and a man."--People
"Thoughtful and moving."--Mary Carole McCauley, Baltimore Sun
"Deeply affecting.... Chabon is a gifted essayist whose narratives lead to unexpected and resonant conclusions. His work here packs an outsized emotional punch that will stick with readers significantly longer than it takes them to read this slim volume."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Chabon expertly weaves together past and present events, infusing them with humor, pop culture, and profound observations."--Booklist, starred review
"Emotionally provocative.... [A] literary ode to parenting."--Library Journal (starred review)
"Combines perfect pitch of tone with an acute eye for detail."--Kirkus
"Dazzling... The novelist's equanimity is so unassailable, and his parenting style so judicious and measured, that lesser men may feel inadequate, hopelessly stuck in the swampy, irrational chafe and fray of day-to-day family life."--Washington Post
"Winning, poignant.... Each of its eight essays constructs a telling world, as Chabon trains his keen eye on small family moments that open onto larger issues."--Boston Globe
