Find out what Father’s Day means to the author of The Comfort Book including inflicting corny 80’s movies on his family, what books he would recommend as gifts and his reading memories with his children. 

What does Father’s Day mean to you?

MH: Well, it means a day when I feel like I can relax with a book or a day I am allowed to inflict corny 80s movies on my family. Last year it was Weekend at Bernie’s and Rocky IV.


Have you been gifted a book for Father’s Day? If yes, could you tell us about it?

MH: Yes. I was given The Lady of the Lake by Raymond Chandler. I had never read Chandler before and it really got me into him and imagining I was an American detective in the 1940s.



What books would you recommend/would you like to receive for Father’s Day this year?

MH: I love non-fiction books as gifts. I think there is less margin for error. Personally, I love books about film, or history, or philosophy.


What’s your favourite reading memory with your children?

MH: My kids are older now - 12 and 13 - but we still read to them sometimes. The most recent one we read together was War Horse by Michael Morpurgo. When they were younger, I remember reading The Tiger Who Came to Tea about seven million times. I still know it by heart.

The Comfort Book by Matt Haig is available in store and online now.
