After being dumped by his longtime girlfriend, the 29-year-old author moves in with his 73-year-old dad, whose straightforward, expletive-laden advice and opinions became a hit on Twitter and are now offered in a hilarious collection. 50,000 first printing.
After getting dumped by his girlfriend and being forced to move back in with his father, journalist Justin Halpern was in need of some well-worn, homespun advice on how to get back on his feet. Instead, what he got from his dad was "Sometimes life leaves a hundred dollar bill on your dresser, and you don't realize until later that it's because it f----- you" and "You don't know sh--, and you're not sh--. Don't take that the wrong way, that was meant to cheer you up." Luckily, Justin was bright enough to start posting his father's obscene aphorisms on Twitter, and the site eventually racked up more than a million followers. In this rib-splitting and jaw-dropping memoir, Halpern compiles more of his father's profane, yet oddly insightful, wisdom, and details the many other lessons he absorbed during his unique upbringing.
