Stories of Fatherhood, Hardback Book

Description

This wide-ranging anthology pays tribute to fathers young and old.

At one end of the spectrum, a touching story by Ann Packer tells of a man preparing for the wonder and terror of his first child's birth, and from Frank O'Connor's comes a hilarious tale of a small boy's war against his paternal rival in `My Oedipus Complex'.

At the other, John Updike's `My Father's Tears' and Jim Shepard's `The Mortality of Parents' bring us face to face with a loss that is like no other.

Maupassant, Kakfa, Nabokov, Edith Wharton, Raymond Carver, Graham Swift, Julian Barnes, Helen Simpson ...all these and more offer a wonderful assortment of fictional takes on the paternal bond.
