The New York Times bestseller: “Hilarious. No mushy tribute to the joys of fatherhood, Lewis’ book addresses the good, the bad, and the merely baffling about having kids.”—Boston Globe When Michael Lewis became a father, he 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 is also something else: maybe 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. The only wonder is that his wife has allowed him to publish it.

Here, with his remorseless eye for the truth, the bestselling author of Liar's Poker turns his sights on his own domestic world. The result is a wickedly enjoyable cautionary tale. Lewis reveals his own unique take on fatherhood, dealing with the big issues and challenges of new-found paternity: from discovering your three-year-old loves to swear to the ethics of taking your offspring gambling at the races, from the carnage of clothing and feeding to the inevitable tantrums - of both parent and child - and the gradual realization that, despite everything, he's becoming hooked. Home Game is probably the most brazenly honest and entertaining book about parenting ever written.

'If you remembered what new parenthood was actually like you wouldn't go around lying to people about how wonderful it is, and you certainly wouldn't ever do it twice.' Michael Lewis thought he'd seen it all. He'd worked in the city. He knew how to deal with the worst excesses of human behaviour. He had cojones. Right? Wrong. He was about to become a father . . . 'I know for a fact that my children are insane. Or, at any rate, I know that if an adult behaved as my children do, he would be institutionalized. Is it possible that they are contagious?' Here Lewis reveals his own unique take on new-found paternity: from discovering your three-year-old loves to swear to the ethics of taking your offspring gambling at the races, from toilet training to the inevitable tantrums - of both parent and child - and the gradual realization that, despite everything, he's becoming hooked (although to something more expensive than a Class A drug habit). 'Small children are ungrateful; to do one a favour is, from a business point of view, about as shrewd as making a subprime mortgage loan.' Home Game is probably the most brazenly honest and wickedly funny book about parenting ever written. 'Much effort, none of it mine, has gone into preparing for this moment . . . '

ABOUT THE BOOK Parenthood is an experience often talked about but rarely understood by those who have not gone through it. It is an experience that can hardly be described in words. Author Michael Lewis, in Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood, never claims that he has written a definitive account of fatherhood. Contrary to the title, the book is not even really a guide to what one should expect and do when becoming a father. Rather, it is Lewis personal account of his experience of becoming a father to and raising three children. Reading much like a diary, he takes the reader on the journey that he and his wife, Tabitha Soren, went through. Through Lewis personal account, the reader gets a glimpse of what fatherhood is like. Or, more accurately, what fatherhood was like for one man. MEET THE AUTHOR Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Karen Lac has been writing since 1999. Her articles have appeared in print in The Occidental Weekly. Her writing reflects her broad interests. She writes travel, entertainment, political commentary, health, nutrition, food, education, career, and legal articles for numerous websites. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and a Bachelor of Arts in politics, both from Occidental College. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK When Lewis became a father, the only role model he had was his own father. His own father, like many men of that time whose primary responsibility was to provide economic security, wasnt really involved in raising him. The bulk of the dirty work was done by his mom. Now, fathers are expected to be involved. Lewis knows that some people thinks that he should do more to help his wife out with the kids, while there are others who think hes a saint for how much he does. Lewis makes it clear in his book that as of yet, there is no ideal model of fatherhood. If there was, then fatherhood, and parenting in general, wouldnt be so difficult and surprising. Today, fatherhood as practiced by Lewis father and that of most other fathers would be frowned upon and considered to be neglect.

In 1995, Adam Gopnik and his wife, and their infant son left the familiar comforts and hassles of New York for the urbane glamour of Paris. Charmed by the beauties of the city, Gopnik set out to experience for himself the spirit and romance that has so captivated American writers throughout the Twentieth century. In the grand tradition of Stein and Hemingway, Gopnik planned to walk the paths of the Tuilleries, to enjoy philosophical discussion in cafes in short, to lead the fabled life of an American in Paris. Of course, as readers of Gopnik's beloved 'Paris Journals' in the New Yorker know, there was also the matter of raising a child and carrying on with everyday, not so fabled life. Evenings with French intellectuals precede middle-of-the night baby feedings; afternoons are filled with trips to the Musee d'Orsay and pinball games; weekday leftovers are eaten while three star chefs debate a 'culinary crisis'. With singular wit and insight, Gopnik manages to weave the magical with the mundane in a wholly delightful book.
