The story behind Daddy Drinks (Post Hill Press) starts with six L.A. writers and actors who have retired from the club circuit and started families. Just when they think their days of imbibing and wise cracking late into the night are behind them, they realize the power of a fully stocked liquor cabinet and instant messenger. The product is this nonfiction e-book — an intact collection of these six friends’ online late-night chatting sessions. The result of the friends’ best attempts to mentor one another as fathers with hilarious (and sometimes alarming) results.
