About the Book
This #1 Italian bestseller, offering a father’s observations of the everyday moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, has struck a chord with readers around the globe.
Matteo Bussola is a designer and cartoonist who lives in Verona, Italy with his wife Paola; their three young daughters, Virginia, Ginevra, and Melania (ages eight, four, and two); and their two dogs. For two years, he’s been writing posts on Facebook capturing the beauty of ordinary moments with his family. Sleepless Nights and Kisses for Breakfast is the memoir that grew out of these writings. Divided into winter, spring, summer, and fall, the book follows the different seasons of parenthood and life. At times moving, and at others humorous, these writings remind people to savor the present and appreciate the simple things in life.
As Matteo says, “Virginia, Ginevra, and Melania are the lens through which I observe the world. . . . My daughters remind me that being a father means living in that gray area between responsibility and carelessness, strength and softness.” Sleepless Nights and Kisses for Breakfast is an eloquent memoir by a gifted storyteller.
My Take on the Book
This was a great book that while short, was filled with poignant essays that allow you to see inside the world of an involved dad. The stories were touching and heartfelt and show how challenging being a parent can be at times. At the same time the stories also show the good times too. This is a great glimpse into fatherhood. It was a great read that I highly recommend to all!
