Description
In this "literary tool-kit for fathers," historian and journalist John Lewis-Stempel mines 4,000 years of writing, including contemporary fiction, personal letters, ancient Greek poetry, 18th-century childcare manuals, newspaper reports, and even The Simpsons. Here too we find Henri Rousseau, Sylvia Plath, Sigmund Freud, and William Shakespeare all weighing in on fatherhood, as well as Bob Dylan, Auberon Waugh, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Bill Cosby, Franz Kafka, and Johnny Cash. Lewis-Stempel, himself a dad who works from home, celebrates the joys of fatherhood and also explores the responsibilities and vulnerabilities that come along with it.
