BeschreibungStephen Lacey is quite possibly the most neurotic human being on the planet. A bundle of depression, anxiety and hives, he wonders whether he's cut out to be a father. In fact, he's not even sure he likes children.
Henry Loves Jazz is a fly-on-the-wall account of what happens when Henry, his first-born child, comes home: the sleepless nights, exploding eco-nappies, celebrity chef cookbooks, black jellybeans and giant Mexican tarantulas.
Henry Loves Jazz is not just about those first months of coping with a baby at forty-three, but the author's journey from a childless existence to the dagdom of parenthood. Along the way, he questions everything he knows about his own upbringing and his relationship with his parents and his long-suffering wife. He also discovers a love so deep, he can't see the bottom.
PortraitStephen Lacey has written for the Sydney Morning Herald, the Sunday Telegraph, the Good Weekend magazine and the Sunday Magazine. He is the author of two novels, The Tin Moon and Sandstone, which was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize.
