Notes:
A collection of heartfelt, humorous and insightful essays on the meaning of fatherhood. You are born into a family and those are your people, and they know you and they love you and if you are lucky they even, on occasion, manage to understand you. And that ought to be enough. But it is never enough. In 2016, Michael acted as reluctant minder to his son Abraham Chabon, then 13, on a trip to Paris Men's Fashion Week. Possessed of a precocious sense of style, Abe was in his element chatting with designers he idolised and turning a critical eye to the most 'lit' runway looks; Chabon Sr., whose interest in clothing stops at 'thrift-shopping for vintage western shirts' was too hot. Despite his own indifference, however, what emerged was a deep respect for his son's passion, for his bravery in the face of conformity, and a sense of awe in seeing him transform into his own person.
