Looking at family life from a man's vantage point, Harrison gives us an engaging chronicle of his life with four-year-old Tilly and three-year-old Jack in their country home in Suffolk, England. A Father's Diary is as much a record of his observations and experiences as a father as it is a book about his children's changing selves. Harrison writes with a keen eye, not merely observing his children but striving to understand them. Describing himself before becoming a father as ``unfulfilled, an emotionally smaller person,'' he unabashedly relates the range of feelings his children evoke in him, leaving a reader with the sense that he has plunged into fatherhood to relish it fully. He gives us a tribute to fatherhood, full of amusing and touching anecdotes, and enriched by sensitive insights. Cynthia Widmer, Williamstown, Mass.
