Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In 48 personal essays, illustrated with family snapshots and other memorabilia, the significance of fathers to their children's lives is underscored from differing perspectives. Whether celebrity rememberers-Larry King, Buzz Aldrin, Susan Ford (daughter of the former President), Diane Disney (daughter of Walt)-or ordinary people, they acknowledge their fathers' powerful influence. Not all are happy memories; for some a father's absence, or a less than happy relationship with him, is still painful, sometimes recalled with forgiveness and understanding, always with an emotional pull. This celebration of fatherhood makes a charming keepsake. Shanley is the author of She Taught Me to Eat Artichokes. (June)
