Overview

If you believe that your brand new grandchild is the most beautiful creation in the world, you've got "The Grandfather Thing."

If you find yourself showing baby pictures to strangers, you've got "The Grandfather Thing."

And if you believe that you're above all this sentimentality and frivolousness, maintaining a cool objectivity, you're in denial and have the most severe case of "The Grandfather Thing!"

In this warmly comic memoir of grandson Max's first year, humorist Saul Turteltaub -- who believes he's immune to "The Grandfather Thing" -- is converted from objective bystander to super enthusiast as "The Grandfather Thing" works its wonders on his psyche. You know that some universal force is at work when a simple remark like "...he has your smile" turns a perfectly sober and normally unbiased observer into a gushing, babbling, doting "grandpa."

With running (actually crawling and kicking) commentary and poetic observations by baby Max, "The Grandfather Thing" provides a loving look at a man's most unique relationship.
