Brian K. Pinaire


Brian K. Pinaire has published THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S FATHERHOOD, a comic memoir that offers a male perspective on raising children. In witty, insightful, and carefully integrated essays, Pinaire reflects on delivery room negotiations, paternity leave, work-life balancing, passive-aggressive daycare teachers, BabyBjorns, childproofing, children’s music, marital intimacy, and much more.

With a mixture of sarcasm and sentiment throughout, Pinaire shows how parenthood challenges one’s career, relationships, identity, health, and even sanity. But he also celebrates opportunities for fathers today, offers hope for dads who’ve taken the lead without knowing the way, and shows how walking the path to enlightenment means stepping on LEGOs.
