9781910089323: Being Dad: Short Stories About Fatherhood

Fatherhood is in a state of flux. Gone are the simplistic gender roles of yesteryear, the clear divisions between mothers and fathers. More dads than ever before are staying home to be full-time parents to their children; those that work often find themselves part of a working partnership, their kids spending as much time with childminders and nannies as they do with their parents. As society changes its expectations, the question must be asked: what does it mean to be a father? In Being Dad, sixteen contemporary writers - all fathers themselves - explore the highs and lows of fatherhood through fifteen new short stories. From protective instincts gone awry to the ghosts of our fathers haunting every parenting decision, these stories shine a light on what it means to be a father in the twenty-first century. Featuring new stories by: Toby Litt, Nikesh Shukla, Dan Rhodes, Courttia Newland, Nicholas Royle, Dan Powell, Rodge Glass, R.J. Price, Tim Sykes, Lander Hawes, Andrew McDonnell, Iain Robinson, Richard W. Strachan, Richard V. Hirst and Samuel Wright.
