Bruce Clark Credits the Love of Women in His Life for His Emotional Openness

Love, Sex, Fleas, GodBruce Clark, author of Love, Sex, Fleas, God was interviewed by Media Club South Africa, where he discussed his rather deprived upbringing, with only his desperately poor grandmother to care for him. He talks about the process of being surrounded by women early in his life, including his sister and grandmother, which enabled him to be open with his emotions and talk about his troubled childhood.

As a stay-at-home dad, his story is unusual, but what is clear is that his book is written from a place of love and humility.

Bruce Clark is one of those unusual things – a stay-at-home dad. In his uplifting memoir Love Sex Fleas God, aptly subtitled “Confessions of a stay-at-home dad”, he talks about his troubled childhood and his ultimately successful search for direction in life.

The captivating title came out of a paragraph Clark wrote in response to publisher Umuzi’s request to describe the book – “Love sex fleas God” appeared, and the publisher said to him: “That’s the title!”
