Replying to: Love, Sex, Fleas, God by Bruce Clark

Telling the truth can be difficult. It can mean that you hurt someone you care about, but it can also mean you have to own up to an action or a thought of your own of which you may not be proud. In Love, Sex, Fleas, God, Bruce Clark tells the truth in his own witty, intelligent and wise manner, and will have you in fits of laughter or torrents of tears throughout.

Bruce Clark’s debut release is a gripping part-biography, part-novel which will warm your heart, and reveal - for all to see - the highs and lows of being a father. In his own way, and through the telling of his own story, Clark is able to expose to his readers, in a gentle and fatherly manner, the frailty and glory that goes hand-in-hand when you’re a parent, a man, and most simply of all, a human being.

Clark begins his book with the statement that Love, Sex, Fleas, God is not a parenting manual. However, you will find yourself quickly falling in love with this 47-year-old first time father and the way in which he handles the highs and lows of parenthood. His charming and witty writing style will have you laughing out loud, whilst his blatant honesty and profound wisdom will touch your heart and bring tears to your eyes.

This book is most simply a book about life. It delves into life, and exposes the good, the bad, the ugly, and the breath-takingly beautiful. This story will bury its way into your heart, so that by the end you will accept yourself – flaws and all – and sense the celebration of life with which Clark tackles everyday. From living on the streets as a teenager after a tumultuous up-bringing; to becoming the stay-at-home dad of the year (and the nappies and niggles that that brings), there’s seemingly nothing too challenging for this incredible father to tackle, with a witty retort and wisdom far beyond his years.
