Tim Dowling introduces his hilarious memoir, How to Be a Husband

How to be a Husband

Get an inside look at Tim Dowling's life as a husband and father - he might not have all the answers, but the mistakes, joys, and surprises make for a very funny and heartfelt read. 

Dear Reader,

I should warn you from the outset that this is not a self-help book. The kind of people who read self-helps books would not, I imagine, wish to be more like me. You will also note that the book is pointedly not called How to Be a Good Husband. The ‘Good’ was the first thing to go.

This all came about because some years ago I was asked to wrote a book called How to Be a Man. I’m sorry, I said, but I don’t know anything about that. ‘Husband’ is different; I am definitely a husband. I have all the paperwork.

Andrew Yackira's Staff Picks

Brianna is the Executive Director of Publicity and Marketing for the Tarcher and Perigee imprints. She enjoys books that teach you something just as much as ones that entertain (science, pop psychology, “big think” books, romance, sci/fi-fantasy, food/cocktail books, coloring books—the gamut). She also loves good food, craft cocktails and shih-tzu puppies.
