Jim Lindberg is a Punk Rock Dad. When he drives his kids to school in the morning, they listen to the Ramones, the Clash, or the Descendents—and that's it. They can listen to Britney and Justin on their own time. Jim goes to soccer games, dance rehearsals, and piano recitals like all the other dads, but when he feels the need, he also goes to punk shows, runs into the slam pit, and comes home bruised and beaten . . . but somehow feeling strangely better. While the other dads dye their hair brown to cover the gray, Jim occasionally dyes his blue or green. He makes his daughters' lunches, kisses their boo-boos, and tucks them in at night—and then goes into the garage and plays Black Flag and Minor Threat songs at a criminal volume. He pays his taxes, votes in all the presidential and gubernatorial elections, serves on jury duty, and reserves the right to believe that there is a vast Right Wing Conspiracy—and that the head of the P.T.A. is possibly in on it. He is a Punk Rock Dad.

Leo Caraway, Präsident der Jungen Republikaner und zukünftiger Harvard-Student, hat sein Leben bereits vollständig durchgeplant. Seit er jedoch weiß, dass sein biologischer Vater niemand geringeres ist, als King Maggot McMurphy, der Sänger der erfolgreichsten Punkrockband aller Zeiten, ist Leo überzeugt, dass McMurphys Blut in seinen Adern ihn zu einer tickenden Zeitbombe macht, die nur darauf wartet, zu explodieren, um sein wohl sortiertes Leben zu zerstören. Als es dann tatsächlich zu einer Katastrophe kommt und er sein Havard-Stipendium verliert, entschließt er sich, Kontakt zu McMurphy aufzunehmen. Insgeheim hofft er, ihn dazu zu bewegen, ihm sein teures Studium zu bezahlen. Das Ergebnis der Aktion: Er geht mit der Punkrockband auf Tour und entdeckt dabei überraschende Wahrheiten über seinen Vater, seine Freunde und – am allerwichtigsten – über sich selbst.

'Enlightening' - Stephen King THE FINAL WORD ON THE GENIUS AND MISCHIEF OF THE RAMONES, TOLD BY THE MAN WHO KEPT THE BEAT – AND LIVED TO TELL ABOUT IT. When punk rock reared its spiky head in the early seventies, Marc Bell had the best seat in the house. Already a young veteran of the prototype American metal band Dust, Bell took residence in artistic, seedy Lower Manhattan, where he played drums in bands that would shape rock music for decades to come, including Wayne County, who pioneered transsexual rock, and Richard Hell and the Voidoids, who directly inspired the entire early British punk scene. If punk has royalty, Marc became part of it in 1978 when he was anointed 'Marky Ramone' by Johnny, Joey, and Dee Dee of the iconoclastic Ramones. The band of tough misfits were a natural fit for Marky, who dressed punk before there was punk, and who brought with him his 'blitzkrieg' style of drumming, as well as the studio and stage experience the group needed to solidify its line-up. Together, they would change the world. From the cult film Rock 'n' Roll High School to 'I Wanna Be Sedated' to Marky's own struggles, Punk Rock Blitzkrieg is an authentic, unflinching, and always honest look at the people who reinvented rock music. And not a moment too soon.

Some of Canada's most acclaimed multicultural personalities, public figures, intellectuals, entertainers, athletes, and activists share stories, memories, insights, and revelations about fatherhood, from the comic to the tragic. Through critical essays, first-person musings, interviews, conversations, spoken word, and dub poetry, this collection examines the place where cross-cultural fatherhood intersects with the worlds of technology, hip hop, and hipster culture - a cool diverse dads movement! As an African-Canadian fatherhood advocate, Dalton Higgins also digs around to see how black fathers of this millennium are faring, as academics and pundits have debated for decades what is at the heart of the problem when it comes to the much-publicized shortcomings of black fathers. Fatherhood 4.0 spots trends across a newer generation of media-savvy multi-culti dads influenced by everything from George Lopez and Bill Cosby to the Osbournes and Obama, with keen insights and essays from fatherhood activists. It includes essays on the "baby daddy" phenomenon and Bob Marley, pops in popular culture, technology and parenting, and crucial research on aboriginal fatherhood by Dr. Jessica Ball. The book contains candid interviews with: Michael "Pinball" Clemons, Broken Social Scene's Charles Spearin, Toronto FC's Dwayne De Rosario, Bollywood Boulevard's Mohit Rajhans, George Elliott Clarke, Hal Niedzvicki, Lawrence Hill, Fucked Up's Damian Abraham, dramatist Richard Lee, the CBC's Matt Galloway, social entrepreneur Sol Guy, Plex, and more!

Das literarische Abenteuer aus Norwegen, das autobiographische Projekt von Karl Ove Knausgård geht weiter: Nach Sterben und Lieben nun Spielen – ein Roman über eine Kindheit, der eine Welt beschreibt, in der Kinder und Erwachsene parallele Leben führen, die sich nie begegnen. Alles beginnt mit einer traditionellen Familie: Vater, Mutter und zwei Jungen, die nach Südnorwegen ziehen, in ein neues Haus in einer neuen Siedlung. Es sind die frühen Siebzigerjahre, die Kinder sind klein, die Eltern jung, die Zukunft scheint offen und verheißungsvoll. Aber irgendwann beginnt sie sich zu schließen, irgendwann wird das, was mit großen Hoffnungen begann, klein und festgelegt. Was ist passiert? Wie konnte es dazu kommen? »An einem milden und bewölkten Tag im August 1969 fuhr auf einer schmalen Straße am äußeren Ende einer südnorwegischen Insel, zwischen Wiesen und Felsen, Weiden und Wäldchen, ein Bus. Er gehörte der Arendal-Dampfschifffahrtsgesellschaft und war wie alle Busse des Unternehmens hell- und dunkelbraun. Er fuhr über eine Brücke, an einer schmalen Bucht entlang, blinkte rechts und hielt. Die Tür ging auf, eine kleine Familie stieg aus. Der Vater, ein großer und schlanker Mann in einem weißen Hemd und einer hellen Polyesterhose, trug zwei Koffer. Die Mutter, in einem beigen Mantel und mit einem hellblauen Kopftuch, das um die langen Haare geschlungen war, hielt an der einen Hand einen Kinderwagen und an der anderen einen kleinen Jungen. Als der Bus weitergefahren war, hing seine dicke, graue Abgaswolke noch für einen Moment über dem Asphalt.«
