A riotously funny book about how to be a good husband (not like he would know) by Tim Dowling, star columnist for The Guardian. Think Nick Hornby meets Dave Barry-with a hint of Modern Family.
This is not a self-help book. Tim Dowling doesn't have any solid advice for you on how to be a man-he tried hard to become one for a while, but in the end he just got older. This is simply the story of how, in the course of ten bewilderingly short years, Dowling went from a bachelor's life in New York City to becoming an ex-pat in London, solidly married and the father of three young boys. It's also an examination of what it means to be a husband in the twenty-first century-and what is and isn't required to hold that office these days.
Tim Dowling has been exploiting his family in his writing for years, ever since it became clear that readers of his weekly column at The Guardian couldn't get enough stories about his acerbically witty spouse and their rambunctious offspring. Dowling writes brilliantly about his wife and marriage, from the first days of their whirlwind courtship to the matter-of-fact way in which they decided to tie the knot, and keeping the "magic" alive after ten years together. Being a husband and father in the era of "The End of Men" isn't easy, and Dowling continues to struggle to find ways to remain relevant to his family (hint: proficiency at DIY never hurts).
How to Be a Husband is a joyous and poignant read-a personal memoir about falling in love, moving to another country, having children, and staying together through money troubles and times of grief-that also just so happens to be devastatingly funny.
