“Old men wearing floppy-brimmed hats are cooler than young men no matter what they wear.”—
By the way - I interviewed Black about his wonderful new book on fatherhood and marriage for my public radio show, Bullseye. It’s one of my favorites in recent months, and very much worth a listen. Black is eloquent and funny about the hardest parts of being a man, including the ones that are rarely talked about publicly. It’s wonderful instruction on the subject of being a grownup.
