Relationships between fathers and sons can be strong and rewarding on both sides, but males in general can get a bad press — absent fathers, violent young men, boys doing badly at school in comparison to their female peers. The key factor is a perceived lack of male role models — of good fathers and fathering — for boys as they grow up. These brilliant stories explore relationships between fathers and sons with comedy, wisdom and, above all, riveting entertainment.
Read about boys and dads in ordinary families, about boys whose dads are absent for one reason or another — through divorce or separation, but also because of work or migration. There are stories about a boy who desperately wants a dad, tales about demanding dads, competitive dads, distant, unemotional dads, dads who try too hard, dads who have favourites among their children, and of course stepdads. This unique collection is a perfect choice for boys aged 9 to 14, giving them top writers on a top theme.
