Father's Day Books

It's that time again, so don't forget to buy Old Dad a book for Father's Day! Here are some creative recommendations: Hamlet, Shakespeare's great tale of a son's love for his Old Dad turned horribly awry (ha!), Richard Ford's Independence Day, a story of a single father out for an awkward weekend with his son, Cormac McCarthy's The Road, that famous post-apocalyptic tale of survival and manly love, or Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, because sometimes our 'children' don't come out quite as we expected and we have to make due.

Or, you know, you can always buy him that golf book like you planned. Hey and don't forget the flowers. Men like flowers too. Before you go, here's a clip celebrating fatherhood (and/or childhood): (It's slightly explicit, so put on your earmuffs if you need to)
