"One knock-out punch of a line after another." My Father's House gets NAILED. And likes it. A lot.

Big thanks to the John Barrios and the whole NAILED crew. And drinks on us, many, soon, somewhere, some how. Excerpt? Cool.

"To this reader, it feels as though a lesson is learned in every chapter. The narrator may not always understand what he is processing, but the reader has a deep sense of the working of the narrator’s mind. It is a good place to spend an afternoon. Ben Tanzer displays his ability to balance the darker moments of grief with a humble sense of humor. It is not only Tanzer’s sensitive wit, but the timing and delivery of his humor within the structure of the narrative, which helps ensure the impact of the more dramatic moments."
