Publisher's Summary

Joshua Braff delivers an authentic, funny, and honest tale about modern family life.

Jay and Jackie uproot their family of four from San Francisco after Jackie loses her job but finds a lucrative new one in St. Petersburg, Florida. Jay, a one-time copywriter and aspiring author, now plays househusband, caring for his troubled 13-year-old son and precocious daughter as they adjust to their new life. As his children begin to assert their independence, Jay realizes that the challenges of child rearing are only going to grow more difficult in the teen years.

Through a series of misadventures and run-ins with his narcissistic older brother, his lunatic childhood friend, and his increasingly estranged but beloved son, Jay learns that he must tap his own vulnerabilities if he is to be the rock of stability his family so desperately needs.

Overflowing with pathos and humor, The Daddy Diaries is a memorable take on contemporary fatherhood and a clear-sighted look at how the upending of traditional marital roles can affect the delicate balance of familial love. In his third and best novel to date, Joshua Braff vividly evokes the unpredictable dance that families do and captures how they similarly ebb and flow.

    Story
    "Find a nearby wall to bang your head on while you listen"

    The only reason I purchased and listened to this audiobook, is because my children attend the same school and we live in the same area / neighborhood as the author's children / author and I know the characters the author is referring to in his diary. Even though I know who "Teri" is, the storyline was pointless and beyond boring! I wanted to quit wasting my time after the first 2 or 3 chapters.
