The second collection of personal essays from award-winning and nationally-published author and essayist Joel Schwartzberg examines a variety of tiny obsessions and observations about modern life through the comic perspective of a remarried dad and pop culture junkie. Thirty-six hysterical, heroic, and haunting short pieces sum up a half-lifetime's worth of experiences that range from relatable and reassuring to funny and fervent, and one extolling a certain 70's pop icon that really depends on how you feel about the guy.

"A collection of humorous, sometimes poignant essays from an award-winning writer and happily divorced father who confesses to hating kids' music but loving Barry Manilow tunes. Although most of the essays are fun but shallow dips in the family pool, a few are more somber and affecting... Many parents, divorced or not, will see reflections of themselves." – (Kirkus Reviews)
