Dad is Fat
By Jim Gaffigan
Crown Archetype, 2013. 274 pgs. Nonfiction
Stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan recounts his experiences as a father of five in this humorous book. Gaffigan, his wife, and their five children all share a two-bedroom apartment in New York City, which means that he has intense first-hand parenting experience to draw from. Gaffigan describes their crazy life with humor and reflects on the oddities and hilarity that come with living with little people.
I listened to the audio book which is narrated by Gaffigan and allows the listener to enjoy his delivery and timing first-hand. This is an especially easy recommendation for parents of small children because they will relate so much to all of Gaffigan's experiences and humorous take on the nature of kids.
