Confessions of an imperfect father...

Dave Hill's Dad's Life is a witty, touching account of single fatherhood, and the highs and lows of being a dad. Perfect for fans of David Nicholls' Us or Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project.

'A witty and upbeat look at the joys of single fatherhood' - The Big Issue

Joseph Stone loves being a father to his 3 young children but finds he has to radically revise his Perfect Father game plan when his partner leaves him and he is left to bring them up on his own. Surely Single Fatherhood is no more onerous than running the local football team? But instead of 4-4-2, he's dealing with 11 and 3/4s, 8 and 6. And then he meets and falls hopelessly in love with Angela and has another child by her, but when his previous partner returns, wanting more involvement with her children, Joseph's life threatens to turn into a chaos of competing needs and domestic mayhem. What does a real man do in these circumstances to avoid relegation to the lower divisions of the paternal sub-species?
