With a nearly 30 percent increase in
reported pregnancies thanks to Hurricane Sandy, there should be more than a few New Yorkers interested in what Drew Magary, a GQ writer and father of three, has to say. Far more entertaining than Dr. Spock, Magary’s new book, Someone Could Get Hurt: A Memoir of 21st-Century Parenthood, reveals his and his wife’s humorous ways of coping (why not get drunk while taking the kids trick-or-treating?), the humiliations they’ve endured (watching their child “defiantly” urinate into a hotel pool), and the lessons they’ve learned along the way. Get a taste for his writing on his blog, F.K.S. (Father Knows Shit), and bring questions for him tonight at BookCourt.
