About the Author

A gifted journalist and public speaker, Marcus Berkmann is an ex-Independent on Sunday sports columnist and ex-Mail pop critic. He writes for the Spectator and Private Eye. His book The Rain Men (1996) is a modern classic that still regularly reprints. The Telegraph called it 'the Fever Pitch of cricket' and Sir Tim Rice called it 'a masterpiece'. Marcus - who claims to have two small children - views parenting with the combined eye of Miriam Stoppard and Bertie Wooster.

Reviews

"I laughed out loud and squirmed with awful recognition. Marcus Berkmann is one of our funniest writers, and he was sent by Heaven - or was it Hell? - to write Fatherhood" -- Craig Brown "Berkmann is a very funny writer ... the text is laugh out loud funny" * Daily Express * "Ambitious and substantial ... Berkmann is highly entertaining ... with an anarchic Monty Pythonesque sense of fun" -- Alain de Botton * Sunday Times * "The laughs come in every paragraph. A masterpiece about sad, neurotic British fathers" * Sunday Telegraph * "A man of infinite wisdom and experience when it comes to male parenting in the 21st century ... The daddy of baby guides ... quick-witted ... excellent" * Mail on Sunday *
