Dude, You're Gonna Be a Dad!
How to Get (Both of You) Through the Next 9 Months
Paperback      ISBN: 1440505365
There are approximately 3,712 ways for a guy to look stupid during pregnancy?this book's here to help you avoid all (most) of them. And here's your first hint: Focus on what you can be doing for her rather than what's happening to her. She's pregnant. She knows that. You know that. And her 152 baby books tell her exactly what she can expect. Your job is to learn what you can do between the stick turning blue and the drive to the delivery room to make the next nine months go as smoothly as possible. That's where John Pfeiffer steps in. Like any good coach, he's been through it. He's dealt with the morning sickness and doctor visits, painting the baby's nursery and packing the overnight bag, choosing a name, hospital, and the color of the car-seat cover. All the while he remained positive and responsive?there with a "You're beautiful" when necessary?but assertive during the decision-making process. (He didn't want to wind up with a kid named Percy.) And now it's your turn. She might be having the baby, but you have plenty of responsibilities.
The Argonauts
The Argonauts
Paperback      ISBN: 1555977359
An intrepid voyage out to the frontiers of the latest thinking about love, language, and family Maggie Nelson's The Argonauts is a genre-bending memoir, a work of "autotheory" offering fresh, fierce, and timely thinking about desire, identity, and the limitations and possibilities of love and language. At its center is a romance: the story of the author's relationship with the artist Harry Dodge. This story, which includes the author's account of falling in love with Dodge, who is fluidly gendered, as well as her journey to and through a pregnancy, is an intimate portrayal of the complexities and joys of (queer) family making. Writing in the spirit of public intellectuals such as Susan Sontag and Roland Barthes, Nelson binds her personal experience to a rigorous exploration of what iconic theorists have said about sexuality, gender, and the vexed institutions of marriage and child-rearing. Nelson's insistence on radical individual freedom and the value of caretaking becomes the rallying cry for this thoughtful, unabashed, uncompromising book.

Rock, Meet Window: A Father-son Story
Rock, Meet Window
A Father-son Story
Hardcover      ISBN: 1452129223
This funny and poignant memoir from celebrated familyman blogger Jason Good delves into the magic, fails, and meaning of fatherhood. Here he shares the story of his father, a charismatic, communicative, and affectionate man who taught him how to live and how to be a dad to his own two young sons. The moment Jason was told he would lose his father to cancer, and the year that followed, inspired him to reflect on how an imperfect father can be perfection in all the ways that matter in the end. Exploring the highs, lows, and complications of fatherhood with tenderness and humor, Rock, Meet Window will have fathers (and mothers, too) thinking about those extraordinary qualities that make a good father so special to us all.
