Summary
  • "Modern manhood is confusing and complicated, but Joey Franklin, a thirtysomething father of three, is determined to make the best of it. In My Wife Wants You to Know I'm Happily Married, he offers frank, self-deprecating meditations on everything from male-pattern baldness and the balm of blues harmonica to Grand Theft Auto and the staying power of first kisses. He riffs on cockroaches, hockey, romance novels, Boy Scout hikes, and the challenge of parenting a child through high-stakes Texas T-ball. With honesty and wit, Franklin explores what it takes to raise three boys, succeed in a relationship, and survive as a modern man. My Wife Wants You to Know I'm Happily Married is an uplifting rumination on learning from the past and living for the present, a hopeful take on being a man without being a menace to society"--
  • "An award-winning Gen Xer writes with humor and heart on fatherhood and fast food, true love and t-ball, hair loss and family in this book about learning from the past and living for the moment"--
