Biography & Memoir • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

A freelance writer and humorist, determined to protect his newborn son from today's shallow culture, becomes a different type of father--"alternadad." Pollack is extremely funny as he describes his bawdy and unconventional youth, and his reluctant path toward marriage and fatherhood. His stories, ranging from his own early years to his son's preschool years, have an outrageous counterculture edge. They convey the good-hearted soul of this struggling artist, as well as his flaws and occasional stupidity. Pollack's reading contributes to the enormous appeal of this audio. He sounds thoroughly spontaneous, boisterous in just the right amounts, and consistently hilarious. He's a musician and pop music fanatic, so young fathers with these interests will feel even more connected with this hugely entertaining audio.
