"The 40-Year-Old Version: Humoirs of a Divorced Dad"
The first-ever collection of personal essays on fatherhood from the perspective of a divorced dad.
"The 40-Year-Old Version: Humoirs of a Divorced Dad" encourages strong fatherhood through funny and personal essays that examine how divorce reinvents relationships with kids and one's own sense of Dadhood.
The 40 short "humoirs" -- heroic, hysterical, and heartbreaking reflections on being a part-time Dad in a full-time life -- make a meaningful read for any parent, particularly the millions who've gone through divorce with their senses of humor intact.
"The 40-Year-Old Version" was officially released in June 2009 by Wyatt-MacKenzie Publishing.
Joel's essays on parenting and other spontaneous phenomena have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, The New York Daily News, The New York Post, The Star Ledger, New
Jersey Monthly, Babble.com, Chicken Soup for the Soul, The Huffington Post, and regional parenting magazines
throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Joel is also a featured blogger for The Star Ledger/NJ.com's popular "Parental Guidance" blog.
