New Book - Here We Are

I am delighted to announce that I have a new book out, HERE WE ARE: Notes for Living on Planet Earth, published 14th November, 2017. 

It's been over a year and a half in the making and is based on the things I began saying to our newborn son the moment we took him home from the hospital as I gave him a quick tour of our apartment.
It started off as a book about the realization that new life is a blank slate (trying to explain what a door is, and what a kitchen is for), and the strangeness of being a new parent. But as the book unfolded, so did the global events of the last year or so, and it felt like it became more urgent to reinforce some basic things my parents taught me about the simple principles of humanity. I wanted my son to know that while we are all unique individuals, we are all in this together.
