father stories is an unusually candid and poignant account of a father's struggle to be "a good enough" dad. Written by a child psychiatrist with great sensitivity and insight, father stories is a powerful memoir: real experiences of a real father. The stories are vividly told and sobering and reveal a glimpse of a father's soul.
The reader is drawn into his world: his respect, love and compassion for his sons and his patients coupled with his anguish, self-doubt and rare moments of delight. At a time when little attention and respect are given to the work of being a father, father stories is a welcomed contribution to families and worthwhile reading for fathers and mothers alike, as well as professionals who work with children and parents.
