Dear Dory: Journal of a Soon-to-be First-time Dad


Partner pregnant. Less than nine months to prepare. Holy s**t – you’re going to be a daddy!

Now, a soon-to-be first-time father is charting a course through the perilous and choppy waters of living with a pregnant woman. He’s dodging hormonal right hooks, evading emotional explosions, saying all the wrong things (like ‘Are you okay?’) and trying to figure out how the hell you install a car seat.

Written as a journal to his unborn child, Dear Dory is the unfiltered, irreverently funny, honest and heartfelt account of one man’s journey to fatherhood as he contemplates his new identity as a Daddy and gets set for the responsibility of a lifetime.

WARNING: This book contains a truckload of profanity.

What do you do when you find out you’re about to become a dad, even though doctors told you it was all but impossible?

You write: about that historic moment when you discover your partner is pregnant, and about how impending parenthood terrifies and excites you in equal measure. And you ask questions of yourself and of the world: questions about why we even have children, and about the expectations faced by a first-time father in today’s society.

What is pregnancy like from a dad’s perspective, anyway?

Surely it’s about much more than installing car seats and buying flat-packed baby furniture, right? Isn’t it about preparing for the biggest identity shift that you will ever undergo?

Find out in Dear Dory, the first volume of the Adventures in Dadding series: the thought-provoking, entertaining, laugh-out-loud story of one dad and his journal as he documents his experiences and prepares to establish his place in the world as a father.
