Small Animals: Parenthood in the Age of Fear
Kevin Clouther's review
Mar 15, 2018
Structurally, this book is more effective than what I've seen in other parenting books, though one needn't be a parent to be moved. Because the author is a fiction writer, the narratives are thoughtful, well paced, and selective in detail. She complements these stories with interviews and research, and in these instances, she allows the authorities to articulate their positions at length, rather than fit their arguments into her own worldview. The cumulative effect is a readable, sobering, honest book, sociological in nature and literary in spirit. It's also pretty funny.
