A Slow Childhood: notes on thoughtful parenting
If you’ve ever struggled to balance a desire for personal fulfilment with a yearning to be the best parent you can be, this book may resonate with you. Part-memoir, part-existential musings, part-guidebook, A Slow Childhood is based on my experience of transitioning from a life focused on career to a life focused on family.
A Slow Childhood is a triumph. I was very moved, often to tears, by it. – Alain de Botton

Never Marry a Girl with a Dead Father
This is my first book, a rewrite of my Phd for a general audience. I was teaching literature at the time, and wondered why so many heroines of 19th century novels didn't have a father.
