Manhood for Amateurs: The Pleasures and Regrets of a Husband, Father, and Son (P.S.) by Michael Chabon
Manhood for Amateurs: The Pleasures and Regrets of a Husband, Father, and Son (P.S.)

mightyhunter, September 1, 2011

No disrespect to my own father, but Michael Chabon sounds like the kind of dad that a poor screwed-up guy like me would love to have. Chabon doesn't pretend to be something that he's not, telling us exactly what it was like for him to fumble through growing up, falling in love, making friends, falling out of love, and all the rest of those events in a man's (or woman's) life that allow us to build character. He writes in such a way that makes me believe that we could've been friends, riding our bikes around almost-abandoned suburban streets, talking about those weird kids down the street that we're jealous of. This book will be dog-eared in no time.
