Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Home gameTitle to be discussed: Home game : an accidental guide to fatherhood by Michael Lewis.  Date of meeting: July 11, 6:30 p.m.  Summary: "When he became a father, Michael Lewis found himself expected to feel things that he didn't feel, and to do things that he couldn't see the point of doing. At first this made him feel guilty, until he realized that all around him fathers were pretending to do one thing, to feel one way, when in fact they felt and did all sorts of things, then engaged in what amounted to an extended cover-up. Lewis decided to keep a written record of what actually happened immediately after the birth of each of his three children. This book is that record. But it may also be the funniest, most unsparing account of ordinary daily household life ever recorded from the point of view of the man inside. The remarkable thing about this story isn't that Lewis is so unusual--it's that he is so typical."
