The first novel by Joshua Braff, 55, was The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green, described as a Jewish coming of age tale. His second novel, Peep Show, won a four-star review by People magazine, which said, “Braff skillfully illuminates the failures and charms of a broken family. That teen longing for adults to act their age haunts long after the final page.” Novelist Adam Langer praised Braff’s third novel, The Daddy Diaries: “Honest and heartfelt, Joshua Braff’s novel about the perils of 21st century fatherhood contains more moments of truth than several hundred bestselling memoirs or self-help books.” Joshua Braff is the older brother of actor-filmmaker Zack Braff.
Quote: “One’s ‘thing’ — (1) A point of personal interest; a hobby, sport, or avocation that succinctly defines a person. (2) A brief coupling of words used to evoke someone’s personality in a small-talk setting: Billy’s thing used to be soccer; now it’s masterbation. (3) A laconic summation of one’s character and interests used for the purpose of categorization and judgement. See also ‘What do you do?’ ”
