Episodes. Michael Lewis cobbled together essays he did for Slate over the past few years, added a few more family anecdotes and published a book titled Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood. Lewis’ writing is lively and entertaining as he shares his personal experiences of being a father. Some of the funniest episodes are like ones that any parent might tell around a picnic or dinner table at an extended family gathering to the amusement of all. The paternal cluelessness Lewis exposes on these pages will be familiar to any wife and mother. Home Game is a breezy reading experience that can be read easily in bursts, separated by a chance to laugh, smirk, or dive into the pool.
