Rachel Rogan, of Rogan's Books in Bedford, says: "A collection of essays about what it is to be a father. It's literary but it might give him a better sense of feelings that his father had for him and and feelings in general between fathers and sons"
Fashion also takes centre stage in the essay ‘Little Man’, in which Chabon describes taking his clothes-obsessed 13-year-old son Abe to Men’s Fashion Week in Paris. It’s both a fascinating take on its subject and brilliantly written, but what’s more, the care Chabon takes with his subject – that where Abe’s heart lies, not Chabon’s own – ensures it’s steeped in parental love without ever being gushing.
Read the book for this gem of a piece alone. It’s that good.
