Andrew Bomback – Long Days, Short Years at The Corner Bookstore

August 9, 2022 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

When did “parenting” become a verb? Why is it so hard to parent, and so rife with the possibility of failure?

In Long Days, Short Years, Andrew Bomback—physician, writer, and father of three young children—looks at why it can be so much fun to be a parent but, at the same time, so frustrating and difficult to parent. It’s not a “how to” book (although Bomback has read plenty of these) but a “how come” book, investigating the emergence of an immersive, all-in approach to raising children that has made parenting a competitive (and often not very enjoyable) sport.
