I Sleep at Red Lights: A True Story of Life After Triplets Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bruce Stockler captures the chaos, joy and challenges of becoming the father of triplets in this hilarious, fast-paced, and refreshingly honest memoir.

From the moment Stockler and his wife ,Roni, learn they have hit the fertility jackpot, their lives are turned upside down. The day the babies are born—in an operating room bustling with 30 doctors, nurses and technicians—is the first jolt in a physical and emotional roller-coaster ride. And every day following continues to reveal one unpredictable twist after another. Just going to the supermarket and keeping the kids—and the store—safe from disaster is like an episode from an adventure story. When the triplets start to walk, and explode in three directions at once, they quickly learn to exploit their newfound freedom at every possible turn.

Review:

"[T]he structure is somewhat loose and repetitions abound. But these flaws ultimately don't detract from this book's overall appeal, which should extend even to those fathers who have just one newborn to contend with." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Funny — but undercurrents of angst make this a vivid status report on modern parenting." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[An] extremely funny, extremely perceptive memoir....The book is charming and tender, with moments of outright hilarity (the author is, after all, a humor writer). Stockler's voice is fresh and memorable....Great fun." David Pitt, Booklist

Review:

"Engaging and observant, this will charm readers, though the author's main revelation — that he is madly in love with his family...is perhaps too often lost in the laughs. Still, this is a pleasure to read..." Library Journal
