There are numerous books in print about parenting and family development but few like this one in which fathers offer their own accounts of being fathers from a startling variety of perspectives. Editors Greg Watson and Richard Broderick have masterfully gathered poignant first-hand accounts of moments in a father's life from teething to burying reflective poems describing the arc of fatherhood accounts of insight struggle grief and delight gained while being a father and epiphanies that occur only to parents.
Greg Watson's work has appeared in numerous literary journals and anthologies including The Wind Blows the Ice Breaks: Poems of Loss and Renewal by Minnesota Poets and the Saint Paul Almanac. His most recent collection is All the World at Once: New and Selected Poems published by Nodin Press.
