"So there I sat on the couch, pregnancy test in one hand and coffee cup in the other, pretty much wanting to vomit but trying to smile instead."

A Q&A with Christian Piatt

Deborah Arca

"I think I learned I'm probably better at writing about fatherhood than I actually am at fatherhood. So here's hoping this book goes big so I can pay for my kids' therapy." A funny and real Q&A with the author of PregMANcy.

Book Club Roundtable

A Welcome Dad Memoir

A Welcome Dad Memoir

Adam Walker Cleaveland

Christian opens himself up and shares vulnerable stories of his successes, failures, and “growing edges” as a dad. It was wonderful to read through it now as I am in the world of being a new dad as well...

The Perfect Father's Day Gift

The Perfect Father's Day Gift

Chris Smith

In a world where dads are all too often absent (or absent-minded), where our concepts of Dad are shaped by Homer Simpson or Archie Bunker, it’s refreshing to hear the story of a dad who is attentive and engaged in family life.

Fatherhood, Anxiety, and Love that Longs for Expression

Fatherhood, Anxiety, and Love that Longs for Expression

Ellen Painter Dollar

Why do we do it? Why say “yes” to that second (third, fourth….) baby? As Piatt says, “We don’t have kids because we’re guaranteed the results we want. We have them because the love contained within us longs to be expressed.”

An Honest Memoir: Becoming a Dad, Take 2

An Honest Memoir: Becoming a Dad, Take 2

Carl Gregg

For those who are parents, having friends who are parents, or are thinking about becoming parents, there is much hard-earned learning and laughter in Piatt’s latest book.

Not Just Another

Not Just Another "How-to-Parent" Book

George Elerick

A novel for anyone who has been on the journey toward reluctant fatherhood needs to read this book; you will find traces of yourself and your own journey within these pages, whether you have children or not.
