Stepmom Book Club: Musings of a Divorced Dad

3 06 2009

40YROLD.COVER3There’s a new book out this month by Joel Schwartzberg called The 40-Year-Old Version: Humoirs of a Divorced Dad.The essays in this memoir are sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, sometimes absolutely heartbreaking. It’s an interesting read for stepmoms because Schwartzberg details his experience as a divorced dad, single dad, and then remarried dad. I love how the book shows his feelings for his kids and documents those little awkward moments that come with life after a divorce. The stories about dropping his kids off at school and attending parent-teacher conferences are especially touching. Many of the essays in this collection are not about divorce or remarriage, and I wished there were more of them about his transition to remarriage. Overall it was a charming read. Check it out and let us know what you think!
