Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0571198724, Hardcover)

A story about Bill Henderson, the founder and publisher of the Pushcart Press, from his freewheeling life as a struggling small publisher and a man-about-New-York-City then meeting his wife, setting up house, the ambivalence about having a child and finally the hilarious misadventures leading to the birth of his daughter. "Her Father" is a highly personal yet universally familiar account of one man’s passage to adulthood and concurrent spiritual reawakening.

"A perversely heartening and optimistic book because it proves that even the most infuriating and self-destructive of men can be dragged kicking and screaming into adulthood under the instruction of a brave woman and a child who will get herself born no matter what. I believe everything Bill Henderson says, especially the tales he tells on himself because, as some have said about the Bible, would anyone have made up stories as full of folly and hunger and humbled power as these if they hadn’t been true," Rosellen Brown.
