With the publication
of Alternadad, Neal Pollack became the spokesperson for a new
generation of parents. Pollack, a self-styled party guy known mostly for
outrageous literary antics, recounts how he and his wife became responsible
parents without sacrificing their passion for pop culture. From an ill-fated
family trip to the Austin City Limits Festival, to yanking his son out of an
absurd corporate gymnastics class, to dealing with the child’s ongoing biting
problem, Pollack captures the wonders, terrors, and idiocies of parenting
today. Alternadad is both an engaging and amusing memoir of
fatherhood and a fascinating portrait of a new version of the American family.
