Description

"All kinds of funny--raucously, wickedly, sweetly, saucily, surprisingly, profanely funny...a wonderful novel." --Jess Walter, author of The Financial Lives of the Poets

"Deft and funny, true and real. If you read one book this year, read this one." --Molly Jong-Fast, author of The Social Climber's Handbook

Senior editor at the online literary magazine The Nervous Breakdown and author of Totally Killer, author Greg Olear brings us a not-so-typical day in the life of stay-at-home dad Josh Lansky, juggling myriad fatherly responsibilities while dealing with the maddening realization that his away-on-business wife just might be having an affair. Fathermucker is a sweet, heartrending, often hilarious look at family life from the dad's perspective that Nick Hornby fans will most certainly respond to. As Jessica Anne Blau, author of Drinking Closer to Home and The Summer of Naked Swim Parties so insightfully points out, "Only a writer with the verve, daring, and great talent of Greg Olear could pull off a novel that deals with sippy cups, masturbation, autism spectrum disorder, affairs, and play-dates all at once."
