"The real joy of this collection is the interplay between past and present, childhood and maturity." Lost in Space. The Collagist. Word.

A quite lovely and most definitely humbling review indeed. And big thanks to The Collagist for that. Excerpt? Word.

"Tanzer cuts through the sourness of growing old, inexplicably, by showing how sour it can get. It's an odd technique, but it's refreshing for someone writing about parenthood to avoid sentimentalizing becoming a parent. Through the pain and discomfort, something sweet and touching can emerge. Like some of the best flavor pairings, the sour and the sweet aren't just in opposition, but they actually complement one another. This is because Tanzer just presents fatherhood, warts and all."
