For the father who read you Grimm fairy tales every night before bed: In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods, Matt Bell
In this shimmering, fable-like novel, Bell explores the meaning of fatherhood, husbandhood, and manhood from a strange world of bears, giant lake monsters, endless rooms, and everything else that can be song-spun. For the father with a flexible mind.
