Josh Lansky is striving to be a good dad but his son has woke him up at 5:03 AM, his daughter wakes up as he’s about to step in the shower, his wife is out of town on business and just might be having an affair. Things get worse from there as he hasn’t even had his coffee yet and he struggles with being a screenwriter who hasn’t actually wrote anything lately, a freelance writer trying to get an interview with the singer of one of his favorite bands and trying to be a faithful husband and stayathome dad without losing his mind.
This reminds me of Tom Perrotta’s Little Children but there is enough different to be a very enjoyable read without being a rehash. I thought it was very humorous and very realistic in the decisions, fears, helplessness, heartbreak but also hope it takes to raise children.
