Palooka: 12 Rounds to Fatherhood

We live in a world where manhood is often tied to one's ability to "plant his seed." Palooka: 12 Rounds to Fatherhood tackles this toxic notion head-on. The author, James Thoo, details his personal struggle with infertility and the IVF journey he goes on with his wife. We talk to the author about how he found the courage to pen this book, his relationship with his old-school father, as well as his comedic writing style.
