A “best of” collection of essays from the ‘zine Rad Dad and the blog Daddy Dialectic in which Moniz and Smith write about how being fathers has changed their lives in the whole – the politics of being a dad, whether it’s being the only guy on the playground, marveling at the effortless way kids pick up on benefits and detriments of various skin tones, trying to avoid the pink and blue divide, or working on the balancing of “dad” and “mom” responsibilities and options. There are plenty of books out there from women examining their experiences being a parent – here’s one by the men. Thoughtful, passionate, and intelligent, these essays will make readers consider their own thoughts about parenthood and what it means in our society today.
