This memoir of the author’s father is supposedly famous for its gentle humor, but I didn’t find anything at all funny about the bigoted, sexist, selfish ass.

I love Clarence Day’s books and have since I was a teen. Fascinating and loving if bemused portrayal of life in a wealthy NYC family.

From Day's book, [b:Life with Father|506871|Life with Father|Clarence Day Jr.|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1262145378l/506871._SY75_.jpg|494907]. I saw the movie years ago with William Powell, Irene Dunne and a young Elizabeth Taylor. I remember it fondly, so I found the story a bit of nostalgia and easy to visualize.

Something about the tone didn't click with me. . . I have a feeling it could be funnier if it did. All in all, I liked the characters but always felt like I was missing an "in" joke.

One thing that did get through to me: his dad certainly had two favorite expletives. PG rating, probably.
