Thanks to a popular Penn publication, Adam Lebovitz (W'03) has now optioned Craig Boreth's (C'91, First male drummer in Bloomers pit band) (pictured below) book, "How To Feel Manly In A Minivan".
Craig's book is a survival guide for new dads, helping each guy facing fatherhood to make the transition with his masculinity, sanity and lower back intact. It's not really a parenting guide, but more a guide to fatherly self-preservation, covering such subjects as:
- How to have sex for procreation
- How to remain conscious during delivery
- How to see your wife as a MILF
- How to Get That #%&%$ Song Out of Your Head
Per Adam (pictured right), his story on how he found Craig's book is very much a "feel good" Penn alumni story:
"I actually found the book by reading about it in the Penn Gazette. The title was so funny that I immediately bought a copy and read it. The book was hysterical! Craig Boreth's writing has such a genuine and fresh voice. Even though the book was written from a guy's perspective, both men and women can appreciate the humor of finding yourself on the verge parenthood and then all of the comedy of being a parent.FYI, Adam owns his own production company called "Five Star Pictures" where he is partnered with his brother Nolan Lebovitz.
I am in the early stages of development on it. I am exploring both paths of setting it up in television and features. Working on a comedy will be a much different experience than my last project I produced which was a crime thriller called Tortured, starring Laurence Fishburne and Cole Hauser. Sony recently bought it and will be releasing it in September."
