“Sometimes when mommies and daddies love each other very much…”
Sometimes they make a baby. Sometimes they make a book.
Drew Perry started writing Kids These Days when he was first facing fatherhood. He has faced it and he loves it and he’s still a bit afraid of it: “It can, in ways, be The Best Thing That Ever Happened to You. But if you’re not afraid, I’d say, every day — if you’re not right on the edge of losing your way forever — then you’re doing it wrong. Or you’re not doing all of it.”
Kids These Days takes perfect aim at the two sides of impending fatherhood — abject terror and unconditional love. And it does it in a weird, beautiful, hilarious world.
