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"

"This book, steeped in parental love, is worth reading for a brilliant essay on taking his son to Men's Fashion Week alone"

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.
