A successful lawyer and father shares his secrets to a happy, healthy family life in a humorous reflection on raising children in the modern age
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
The wry cast of these vignettes by a parent who is also a New York lawyer offers glimpses of the absurdities, trivialities and perplexities of contemporary family life. Trowbridge, whose brief essays appear frequently on the op-ed page of the New York Times , is a family man, comfortable relating his experience of tonsils, athletic shoes, hamsters, holiday rituals and birthday parties. The author also muses on such conundrums as adult language (e.g., "Let's have lunch someday" translates as "The conversation is over now"), his first job interview with a law firm, and the perils in choosing a suitable dinner wine. Good humored self-deprecation flows through these mellow recollections.
