If You're A New Parent, Or Just a Human Being, Read This

Drew Magary is one of my favourite writers. He writes for Deadspin and GQ amongst others, and his first novel The Postmortal is awesome.

His latest Deadspin piece talks about the last seven weeks or so of his life; his wife had their third child that many weeks premature. It is funny and sad and scary and genuine and all of the things that good writing should be. It is 100% worth your time, whether you're a new parent or not.

My cousin Julia just took home her baby girl after a premature birth, and I consider myself super lucky that Sarah and I didn't have to go through that. I'm sure it made everyone involved that much stronger, though.

Thanks for sharing this, Drew.
