Dad's Life: A novel about parenthood that will make you laugh and cry
Confessions of an imperfect father...
'A witty and upbeat look at the joys of single fatherhood' - The Big Issue
Joseph Stone loves being a father to his 3 young children but finds he has to radically revise his Perfect Father game plan when his partner leaves him and he is left to bring them up on his own. Surely Single Fatherhood is no more onerous than running the local football team? But instead of 4-4-2, he's dealing with 11 and 3/4s, 8 and 6. And then he meets and falls hopelessly in love with Angela and has another child by her, but when his previous partner returns, wanting more involvement with her children, Joseph's life threatens to turn into a chaos of competing needs and domestic mayhem. What does a real man do in these circumstances to avoid relegation to the lower divisions of the paternal sub-species?
