Daditude: The Joys & Absurdities of Modern Fatherhood

Life is never peaceful in Chris Erskine’s house, what with the kids, 300-pound beagle, chronically leaky roof, and long-suffering wife, Posh. And that’s exactly the way he likes it, except when he doesn’t. Every week in the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and other papers, Erskine distills, mocks, and makes us laugh at the absurdities of modern fatherhood. And now, he’s gathered the very best of these witty and wise essays, and invited his kids (and maybe even Posh) to annotate them with updated commentary.

This handsome book is the perfect gift for the father who would have everything—if he hadn’t already given it all to his kids.

“Chris Erskine hits nothing but home runs. His work is replete with wit, context, perception, and almost always a healthy dose of compassion.” — Al Michaels, legendary sportscaster

Every week in the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune (and now and then in many other papers), Chris Erskine distills, mocks, and makes us laugh at the absurdities of suburban fatherhood. And now, he’s gathered the very best of these witty and wise essays―and invited his kids (and maybe even his wife, Posh) to annotate them with updated commentary, which they promise won’t be too snarky.
