9780007527687: How to Be a Husband

This is not a self-help book. Tim Dowling doesn't have any solid advice for you on how to be a man -- he tried hard to become one for a while, but in the end he just got older. This is simply the story of how, in the course of ten bewilderingly short years, Dowling went from a bachelor's life in New York City to becoming an ex-pat in London, solidly married and the father of three young boys. It's also an examination of what it means to be a husband in the twenty-first century -- and what is and isn't required to hold that office these days.

About the Author:

Journalist Tim Dowling was born in Connecticut and moved to the UK at the age of 29. He is the author of 4 books (so far) including a novel, 'The Giles Wareing Haters' Club'. For the last five and a half years his popular weekly Guardian column has charted the ups and downs of family life, and his largely unsuccessful attempts to be recognised as a competent father and husband, combining self-deprecating humour with a perverse optimism.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The much-loved Guardian columnist asks what it takes to make a husband, and looks to his own married life to provide the answer.* *Anything resembling advice should be taken at reader s own risk. You ll never get divorced if you never get married. Not even your granny minds if you live in sin anymore. And if you re single you can choose curtains without somebody else butting in. So why bother with marriage? It can t just be an easy way round having to buy your own deodorant. Guardian columnist Tim Dowling is a husband of some twenty years. His marriage is resounding proof that even the most impossible partnership can work out for the best. Some of the time. So while this book is called How To be a Husband , it s not really a how-to guide at all. Nor is it a compendium of petty remarks and brinkmanship - although it contains plenty of both. You may pick up a few DIY hints. You might learn that while marriage is founded on love, it endures through bloody hard work. Most likely it will make you whimper with the laughter of painful recognition. How To be a Husband is a cautionary tale about throwing caution to the wind.It s the strange romance of two people consenting to share a roll-on. It s a new manifesto for marriage and an answer to why, even when we suck at it, we stick at it. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780007527687
