"...a whip-smart, hilarious, and deeply moving meditation
on fatherhood and marriage."

--Jonathan Evison, author of West of Here and All About Lulu


"In vivid Crayola yellow, Olear brilliantly highlights the bliss and pathos, fear, loathing and lusting of 21st century parenthood. Yet beneath the sippy cups, crumpled Happy Meal bags, and Mom Jeans intertwined with another dad's sweatpants on the floor of this runaway minivan of a novel lies much more. FATHERMUCKER is nothing less than a moving and sneakily profound meditation on what it means to exist in these absurd and troubling times."

-- James P. Othmer, author of The Futurist and Holy Water
"..a book you can't wait for your friends to read, too -- an exhilarating and fearless celebration of life's highs, lows, and all the glorious in-betweens."

-- Maria Semple, author of This One Is Mine
"Fathermucker is a staggering achievement. A reflection on love, marriage and parenthood,
so astoundingly honest, laugh-out-loud funny, and genuine, it will break your heart."
  
-- Robin Antalek author of The Summer We Fell Apart


"I LOVE this book. Packed with fantastically spot-on parenting details, and so funny, I kept
reading it out loud to everyone around me (Yes, even the kids. Let's hope they don't remember)."

--  Lenore Skenazy, author of the book and blog Free Range Kids
"With candor and wit, Greg Olear takes the reader to the most uncomfortable truths
of marriage and parenthood--and yet Fathermucker oozes with vulnerability and love.
I burst into tears several times while reading this novel, and was beyond moved by the
anguished acceptance of young Roland's autism. Compassionate, insightful, and
laugh-out-loud funny."

-- Susan Henderson, author of Up from the Blue

"Funny, wise, sexy...this claustrophobic vision of contemporary parenting hits home."

-- Thelma Adams, author of Playdate

"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 playdates
all at once. Fathermucker is delightfully unexpected, wholly original, and a joy to read."

-- Jessica Anya Blau, author of The Summer of Naked Swim Parties
and Drinking Closer to Home
