On My Desk: Faith of a Child, stories of becoming and being dad

I just had a chance to read Faith of a Child, a new book by Stefan Lanfer. At a 160 pages, it’s a quick read, but densely packed with the little moments from pregnancy and early baby wrangling that will be meaningful to anyone who has had or is having the experience.

Written in a kind of Haiku-style, with sentences that break rhythmically yet are written in something more resembling prose and poetry. For that reason, 160 pages is probably less than a 100 in this slim tome.

Add this to the pantheon of new books written by new dads, with a twist. Congratulations, Stefan, on a book well written.
