Family ManLarge Print - 1998
Veteran New Yorker writer Calvin Trillin uses his wit & humor to enlighten readers with his intimacies as a father & husband in his poignantly funny nonfiction novel Family Man. Trillin touches every subject under his family's sky, beginning with some child-rearing advice: "Try to get one that doesn't spit up. Otherwise, you're on your own." On children he simply states: "Your children are either the center of your life or they're not." His charming ruminations on fatherhood clearly prove that he has reveled in the role of father-writing songs like "Uncle Max's Kids Are Gross, Creepy, Dumb & Yucky" for family movie musicals. Trillin also acknowledges the special perils to the privacy of people living with a writer who occasionally remarks, "I hope you're not under the impression that what you just said was off the record." Family Man is sure to conjure up a few laughs & offer some insightful thoughts on family life.
