Grandfathered: Dispatches from the Trenches of Modern Grandparenthood (Heritage $22.95) chronicles retired newsman Ian Haysom’s adventures with his grandkids Mayana, Emma, and Linden. Through funny anecdotes, Haysom explores the unexpected lessons they have taught him (and those he has attempted to teach them). Reminiscent of Bill Bryson (or “Bill Bryson with a touch of arthritis,” says Haysom), this memoir also investigates the changing role of grandparents in the twenty-first century. 9781772033335
