Publishers Weekly, 1995-07-31 ``What's it like to be you, Dad?'' Henderson's young daughter, Holly, asks him, and this memoir is his answer. The maverick editor and publisher of Pushcart Press writes simply and frankly about his chaotic life before he became a father, picturing his Philadelphia youth in a very religious household, the details of his sexual exploits as a young man of the '70s, the ups and downs of his relationship with Annie, who became his wife, the difficulties surrounding Holly's conception and birth, his return to religion and his firm belief that ``Love is God.'' It was Henderson's hope that ``if I told the truth from my heart it would reach others.'' While ``truth'' is more complex than the surfaces of the events he relatesæwhich he does not probe deeplyæwhat does reach others is a portrait of a doting parent and a warm, lively man. (Oct.)
