Love, courage and wisdom enrich this remarkable volume, a collection of personal reflections on fathers and fatherhood which showcases the work of Australia's best writers.Here, sons and daughters explore seminal relationships in unforgettable ways. They acquaint us with fathers who give the world shape, imparting a sense of wonder and providing memorable introductions to books and to nature. Through unflinching eyes we see angry and damaged men, the prejudiced and miserly as well as the just, jocular and generous. We are moved by stories of deep love, spirituality, sacrifice and commitment, and are forced to recognize that, too often, good intentions count for little. Some writers consider what happens to the son when he becomes a father, and what some men might feel when they do not.Among the contributors are loved literary icons, emergent stars, controversial and outspoken figures, and some who reach the ears of Australian children and teenagers. For many, the invitation to appear in this book presented the most difficult of all assignments, an exposure of the self in the most direct of all literary forms.
