A Boomer, an Xer, and a Millennial walk into a book…
Meet Hammerhead Hirsch, a charismatic middle-aged boho known in the 60s as The Pugilist Poet for his Golden Gloves boxing crown and Beat poetry chops. Thirty years later Head has become a first-time father, and his joy is immense—until the mom bolts. Can Head last fifteen rounds as a single dad with a paltry income, scanty prospects, biting demons, and a “ball-and-chain” kid? The tale is told by a worshipful youth who accompanies Head and his son on a turbulent yet often hilarious ten-year-long journey full of struggles, missteps, love, and growth.
