In Home Repairs, we come to know Austin McMillan through the pages of his journal, a frank, funny, often overheated self-portrait of a privileged young black man who is obsessed with women. We first meet him at an elite prep school, secretly mortified because at the ripe age of sixteen he has yet to kiss a girl. Wondering where he's gone wrong, he sits down to chronicle his passions, From his first kindergarten crush to the teenage sirens who now overwhelm his dreams. Though his list grows as he moves on to the Ivy League, the lessons of experience prove all too elusive: a smile still rockets him to manic bliss and a cross word drives him to despair, but his vivid imagination is never matched by the reality of his life. Austin's musings are hilarious and poignant, his pain always masked by humor as he ricochets his way to manhood

Bedtime stories : adventures in the land of single-fatherhood by Trey Ellis( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

How is a single dad supposed to navigate a new girlfriend into and out of his California king without his son or daughter noticing? For Trey Ellis, steering his way through the unfamiliar nuances of the contemporary dating scene is sometimes a nerve-racking exercise in intra-familial spycraft. But the rewards of being a dad, as any parent knows, easily outweigh any hardships. In a world where African-American fathers are relentlessly portrayed as absent without leave, this irresistible memoir is both a tribute to all those loving, nurturing, black men who are undaunted by the responsibilities of fatherhood and an utterly charming male nonfiction counterpart to Allison Pearson's best-selling novel, I Don't Know How She Does It
