qA Lion in the Snow is a series of coming-of-age essays about a boy, a man, and a father. In this collection of interlinked essays, I elegize my father in sketches that mediate on the threads that bind me to him and inform my own role as a husband and father. I depart from the boyhood landscapes of Philadelphia, the Jersey shore, and the suburban confines of my parents' unraveling marriage to arrive in New England with a wife and two children. In familial portraits tempered by loss and fueled by hope, I explore how a man can sustain his marriage while raising young children. In moments of both chaos and quiet, in ruminations born out of recent memory and my youth, I essay what it means for a man to love those in his familyq--Leaf iii.In this collection of interlinked essays, I elegize my father in sketches that mediate on the threads that bind me to him and inform my own role as a husband and father.
