This book is about fresh starts, about love, about friendship. It is also about the earth-shattering experience of becoming a father, the mundane struggles of family life, ridiculously unsuccessful holidays, the emotional strains of children's birthday parties and pushing a pram around Stockholm when all you really want to do is write.
This is a book about one man's life but, somehow, about everyone else's, too.

"A stunningly eloquent set of reflections on masculinity, domesticity and the artist's itch to escape." (Independent )
"This is a reading experience like no other. Fearless in its truth-telling and as real as life, it is an epic study of what it feels like to be alive." (Metro)
