Dwight GarnerFather's Day takes the form of a road trip that father and son make across America. Its real journey, though, is interior. It's a barely guided tour through Mr. Bissinger's own roiling anxiety, his depression, his narcissism and his profound insecurity, not to mention what he sees as his failings as a man, as a father, as a son and as a writer…Father's Day is riveting and a bit frightening…it's a brutal and vivid [book], the work of a writer with an unflinching gift for honesty, and impossible to put down. I read it in two short gulps, occasionally through the cracks in my fingers.
