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."
