    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Though he grew up longing to be closer to his dad who lived three states away, fatherhood caught David McGlynn completely off guard. His sons were conceived in quick succession--the first when the author was a dirt-poor student and the second not long after he'd moved his family across the country to start a new job. As a result, McGlynn found himself colliding into fatherhood as though it were a car accident, at once scared to death and utterly thrilled. Just like many new fathers, he hopes he's doing the right thing--but he's never quite sure."-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2018 May #1

Parenthood is never easy, especially when it's a surprise. For McGlynn, who first became a father as a broke graduate student and for the second time shortly after moving across the country for a job, fatherhood was immediately filled with ups and downs. A child of divorce, McGlynn grew up calling his dad whenever he needed to talk and continued to do so when his early adulthood insisted on throwing him curveballs: "To grow up longing for a father is to grow up preoccupied with fatherhood itself." Years later, with both sons in school and life established in the Midwest, things still haven't settled down, but in a positive way. Each brutally honest chapter is filled with heart and humor as McGlynn shares his most tender and most trying moments as a parent. "Fatherhood, as I've come to understand it, is an endlessly moving target, especially when it comes to boys." All parents will relate and enjoy, but fathers of sons will most certainly relish this charming and hilarious tale of fatherhood. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
