"Like slamming into a brick wall of incredulous love and wonder." Some quite kind, and most appreciated, Four Fathers love at Atticus Review.
Quite kind. Most appreciated. Excerpt? Word.
"The rhythmic, poignant sections of Tanzer’s prose pack overwhelming punches. Each moment is different, evocative: the thrill of running with one child, the humor of another in puberty growing “penis hair,” the inevitable sting of rejection when the kid snubs his father’s music, the intimacy of a pretend parent-teacher conference. The full force of these moments hits the speaker, the craziness of fatherhood; even the reader can feel it like a wave, or like slamming into a brick wall of incredulous love and wonder."
